It describes the delinquency and status offense cases handled between 1987 and 1996 by U.S. courts with juvenile jurisdiction. National estimates of juvenile court caseloads in 1996 were based on analyses of approximately 894,600 automated case records and court-level statistics summarizing nearly 191,500 additional cases. The data used in the analyses were contributed to the National Juvenile Court Data Archive by nearly 1,800 courts with jurisdiction over 67% of the juvenile population in 1996.'
