Annotation: This supplement presents four kinds of data terminology that should be integrated into the first edition of the State Court Model Statistical Dictionary: revisions to entries in the first edition; data sets for juvenile petition types and juvenile adjudication outcomes; new classification schemes for events in court case processing; and new entries for additional related terms needed to explain terms used in the new definitions.
Abstract: The revisions affect only the caseload inventory scheme for trial court cases and manner of disposition. Each entry indicates whether it is a court statistical or related term and includes the definition, cross references to related terms, synonyms, instructions that permit consistent and unambiguous usage of the terms in data report systems, and an annotation. The entire index from the first edition is appended.
