Definition and Source



These figures represents the number of youth under eighteen years of age who are referred to the Unified Judicial System (UJS) by the states attorneys for an informal diversion, or are adjudicatory actions that have been dismissed. Numbers are for the county in which apprehension took place and represent the number of cases rather than individuals. In other words, if a child was referred to UJS for several different offenses, he or she would be counted several different times.
