  1. Child Protection (combined information for neglect, termination of parental rights, review of permanency plans and revocation of commitment cases).
  2. Delinquency
  3. Family With Service Needs (FWSN)
  4. Youth in Crisis (YIC)

Glossary of Terms

Note on Table Creation: The information in the tables comes from databases that are always being updated. As a result, the tables only show the information that was in the databases on the day they were created. Information in the databases can change because cases that were disposed at the time the table was created were later reopened, or because of the late entry of data. Because of this, all of the tables are created on the 5th business day after the close of the fiscal year.

  • Added case: A case that is entered into one of the Judicial Branch’s automated systems.
  • Disposed case: A case in which a decision has been made.
  • Fiscal year: July 1st through June 30th.
  • Pending case: A case in which a decision has not been made.

Juvenile Matters Data Glossary

  • Child Protection: The primary case types in this category are neglect and termination of parental rights cases. A docket number (case) equals a child with a parent/guardian being the respondent. A parent/guardian can be the respondent in several cases where there are multiple children involved.
  • Delinquency: Criminal/motor vehicle offenses committed by a juvenile before 18 years of age. The basic work unit is the referral which is similar to the docket number in the criminal system. A juvenile can have several referrals as well as several offenses for each referral.
     
  • Family With Service Needs: Status/non-criminal offenses (runaway, truancy, beyond control) committed by a juvenile before reaching 18 years of age. The work unit is the referral, with the vast majority of referrals being handled by way of non-judicial handling.
     
  • Youth in Crisis: Status/non-criminal offenses committed by a juvenile 16 or 17 years of age. The work unit is the referral with the vast majority of referrals being handled non-judicially. Due to legislation effective in January 2010 for 16 year olds and legislation effective in July 2012 for 17 year olds, this case type is now obsolete. These referrals are obsolete and are handled as Family with Service Needs cases.
