Disposition Reports

The Disposition reports contain statewide and county-specific data of dispositions assigned during the reporting year and the characteristics of the youth receiving the dispositions.

Dispositions are grouped into reporting categories consistent with national reporting categories.  Sub-totals and grand totals are provided for each category.  Each statistic is broken down by the youth´s gender, age at the time of disposition, and race/ethnicity.

  • Dispositions of Youth -- The number of youth that received a disposition by the juvenile justice system during the reporting year.  Youth on the Disposition of Youth report are reported in the most intense disposition category imposed for that youth during the year and in the county that imposed the disposition.

  • Dispositions of Referrals -- The number of referrals that received a disposition by the juvenile justice system during the reporting year.  Referrals on the Disposition of Referrals report are reported in the most intense disposition category imposed for that referral during the year. 

  • Disposition of Referrals by Offense Category -- The number of referrals that received a disposition by the juvenile justice system during the year by offense category.  Dispositions are reported in the most intense disposition on the referral.  The offense category is the most serious offense associated with the most intense disposition on the referral.   (See the report´s Appendices A & B for more detail.) 
More details are available in the front matter of each report.

Caution Regarding 2020 Data: The data in the JJIS Annual Reports for 2020 differs significantly from reports from previous years due to the global Coronavirus pandemic. There were 3,833 fewer referrals to County Juvenile Departments in 2020 compared to 2019, a reduction of more than a third. As a result, one should use caution when using 2020 data to make comparisons across years.
