National Center for Juvenile Justice and Missouri Division of Youth Services
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 Missouri. Inaugurated in 1975 and mandated in
1980, the Missouri Division of Youth Services collects and
disseminates delinquency statistics about each case disposed during
the previous calendar year. The data include a record of each case
processed formally with petition and informally without petition, and
contain an individual record on each delinquency, status offense,
dependency, and special proceeding case disposed.
