Children as Victims
Subtitle/Series Name:
1999 National Report Series Juvenile Justice Bulletin
Abstract:
Presents an overview of statistics on juveniles as victims of crime and maltreatment. This Bulletin examines recent trends in violent crime against children and youth (murder, assault, and sexual assault) and in child abuse and neglect, analyzes patterns of victimization, and also summarizes data on missing children. The Bulletin notes that juveniles are twice as likely as adults to be victims of serious violent crime and that children with a history of maltreatment are at increased risk for delinquency. The Bulletin is part of the 1999 National Report Series. Each Bulletin in the series highlights selected themes at the forefront of juvenile justice policymaking and extracts relevant National Report sections (including selected graphs and tables). source
