Date Published
Annotation
This report discusses juvenile crime and victimization and the justice system's response.
Abstract
Citing FBI and other data sources, the report demonstrates that the rate of juvenile crime arrests, after peaking in 1994, has consistently declined over the past several years. The report summarizes data on school violence and describes the recent downturn in the violent victimization of youth. The report includes findings from the 1997 National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, the most current data on self-reported delinquent and antisocial behavior. The report also presents data from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention's new national Census of Juveniles in Residential Placement, summarizing key findings about the characteristics of juvenile offenders in custody. The report provides details on the juvenile population in the United States, juvenile victims, juvenile offenders, the juvenile justice system structure and process, law enforcement and juvenile crime, juvenile courts and juvenile crime, and juveniles in correctional facilities.
