Profiles nearly 1.7 million delinquency cases handled by juvenile courts in 1999 and reviews judicial trends since 1990. This OJJDP Report, the 73d in the Juvenile Court Statistics series, analyzes the offenses charged in delinquency cases, demographic characteristics of juveniles involved, sources of referral, and case processing (detention, intake decisions, waiver to criminal court, adjudication, and disposition). The Report also profiles status offense cases disposed between 1990 and 1999. The data used in the analyses were contributed to the National Juvenile Court Data Archive by more than 2,000 courts with jurisdiction over 70 percent of the juvenile population in 1999. The Report includes tables, figures, and an appendix with county and state-level case statistics for 1999.
