This data collection describes in quantitative terms the
volume of juvenile cases disposed in 1994 by courts having
jurisdiction over juvenile matters (delinquency, status offense, and
dependency cases) in Arkansas. Inaugurated in 1983, the Arkansas
Administrative Office of the Courts began to collect data from intake
and probation departments on each case disposed during the previous
calendar year. The data include a record of each case processed
formally with petition and contain an individual record on each family
in need of services, delinquency, or dependency/neglect case
