Description
The Survey of Juveniles Charged in Adult Criminal Courts (SJCACC) is the only national-level data collection of persons under the age of 18 processed as adults in criminal court. In addition, it is the first BJS state and local courts data collection since 2009. These data will allow BJS to describe the characteristics of this population, the offenses with which they are charged and convicted, and the legal methods by which they reach criminal court. The primary goals of the SJCACC are to (1) identify and obtain access to statewide administrative systems of court data and (2) generate accurate and reliable national estimates describing the processing of persons under the age of 18 processed as an adult in criminal court.
