Appendix D: Jurisdictions Reporting Active Youth Gangs in 1998

This list is not comprehensive. Jurisdictions reporting active youth gangs in 1998 listed for large cities and suburban counties include only those that responded to the survey. Jurisdictions reporting for small cities and rural counties were part of a random sample and statistically represent many other jurisdictions that had active youth gangs in 1998 but are unnamed. All States except Hawaii and Vermont reported gang problems in 1998. This does not mean that these two States do not have gang problems, because the survey is not designed to enumerate gangs State by State (see information on survey sample).
