Delays in Juvenile Court Processing of Delinquency Cases

Publication year: 1997  |  Cataloged on: Aug 04, 2011

This analysis examines the timing of the juvenile court process using a large database of case records contributed to the National Juvenile Court Data Archive. The analysis describes nearly 3 million delinquency cases handled between 1985 and 1994 by 267 jurisdictions in 17 States. These jurisdictions were analyzed because (1) they were relatively large, with populations of at least 20,000; (2) they contributed detailed case records to the Archive every year from 1985 through 1994; and (3) their data files included reliable measures of court processing time.
