Description

The JJAC funded this research study to determine 1) what differences, if any, exist in decisions made for Black, Hispanic and White juveniles who are processed for similar types of offenses as they move through the juvenile justice system; 2) if observed differences remain when controlling for offender and offense characteristics; and 3) if the system has improved in those areas found to be problematic in the two prior studies. The report includes JJAC recommendations for action to address disproportionate minority contact (DMC). The study was conducted by Spectrum Associates Market Research Incorporated and covers the time period of 2005-2006.
