Case Rate Trends
The case rate for petitioned curfew violation cases decreased 89% between 2006 and 2021.

Note: Rates are cases per 1,000 youth ages 10-upper age of juvenile court jurisdiction.

The COVID-19 pandemic, which began in March 2020, may have impacted the policies, procedures, and data collection activities regarding referrals to and processing of youth by juvenile courts for an indeterminate period of time. Additionally, stay-at-home orders and school closures likely impacted the volume and type of law-violating behavior by youth referred to juvenile court.
  • After a slight increase between 2005 and 2006, the case rate for petitioned curfew violation cases fell considerably; the rate in 2021 (0.06 cases per 1,000 youth) was 89% below the rate in 2006.
