This data collection describes in quantitative terms the
volume of juvenile cases disposed in 1988 by courts having
jurisdiction over juvenile matters (delinquency, status offense, and
dependency cases). Inaugurated in 1926 to furnish an index of the
problems brought before the juvenile courts, this series is the oldest
continuous source of information on the processing of delinquent and
dependent youth by juvenile courts. Information is provided on state,
county, number of delinquency cases by sex, number of status offense
cases by sex, number of dependency cases by sex, and total number of
cases by sex.
