It includes (1) rates of nonfatal violent victimization by age, (2) the number of deaths of juveniles due to homicide, (3) the percentage of nonfatal violent incidents in which the offender was perceived to be a juvenile, and (4) the percentage of persons arrested who were juveniles. The data sources are BJS’s National Crime Victimization Survey, the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports, and the FBI’s National Incident-Based Reporting System.
