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). 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. It is the most detailed
information available on youth who come in contact with the juvenile
justice system and on the activities of the nation's juvenile courts.
Information is provided on state, county, number of delinquency cases,
number of status offense cases, number of dependency cases, and total
number of cases. The data distinguish cases with and without the
filing of a petition.
