Measures of Juvenile Delinquency Project: Integrating Individual Level and Aggregate Data

Roberta E. Gealt, Principal Investigator

Initiated: 2005

Funding Source: Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention

Project Summary:

This project used student-level data collected by CDAS through the Delaware School Surveys and aggregate data from schools and districts, along with other archival data collected by state agencies to create a model at the state level for collection, analysis, integration and dissemination of data pertaining to juvenile self-reported drug use and delinquency. The goals of the project were to ensure data consistent with federal reporting requirements and to enhance needs assessment analyses of risk and protective factors for state and local planning, service delivery and evaluation.
