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.
