OJJDP has updated its Statistical Briefing Book to include a new Data Snapshot on teen dating violence. The Data Snapshot draws on data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System to document the trends and characteristics of dating violence reported by high school students.
OJJDP has released "Delinquency Cases in Juvenile Court, 2016." This fact sheet presents statistics on delinquency cases handled in U.S. juvenile courts from 2005 to 2016. During the 12-year period, the number of delinquency cases involving juveniles declined 49 percent. Decreases were experienced across four offense categories: property, public order, person, and drug law violations.
The National Center for Juvenile Justice (NCJJ) has released Juvenile Court Statistics 2014. The report describes delinquency cases and petitioned status offense cases that courts with juvenile jurisdiction processed in 2014 and presents trends since 2005. Data include case counts and rates, detailed by juvenile demographics and offenses charged. In addition, national estimates of cases involving Hispanic youth are now available.
