This data collection describes in quantitative terms the
volume of juvenile cases disposed by courts having jurisdiction over
juvenile matters (delinquency, status, 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 done by
juvenile courts. Information is provided on state, county, number of
delinquency cases by sex, number of status cases by sex, number of
dependency cases by sex, and total number of cases by sex.
