Profiles more than 1.6 million delinquency cases handled by juvenile courts in 2000 and reviews judicial trends since 1985. This OJJDP Report, the 74th 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 1985 and 2000. The data used in the analyses were contributed to the National Juvenile Court Data Archive by more than 2,000 courts with jurisdiction over 71 percent of the juvenile population in 2000. The Report includes tables, figures, and an appendix with county and state-level case statistics for 2000. Available online only.
