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 collection 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 dependency cases by sex, and total
number of cases.
