Where can I find juvenile court statistics?
The National Juvenile Court Data Archive (Archive) houses the automated records of cases handled by courts with juvenile jurisdiction. The Archive was established by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) to promote access to automated juvenile court data sets, which include information for juvenile justice research and policymaking efforts.

Additionally, the Easy Access to Juvenile Court Statistics (EZAJCS) was developed to facilitate independent analysis of national estimates on the more than 40 million delinquency cases processed by the nation's juvenile courts between 1985 and 2010. With EZAJCS, users can perform unique analyses on the age, sex, and race of juveniles involved in these cases as well as the referral offense, the use of detention, adjudication and case disposition.

For further information on juveniles in court, visit the Juvenile Justice: Juvenile Courts section of our Web site and the Juveniles in Court section of the OJJDP Web site.
