Definitions: Rate of arrests for status offenses among juveniles aged 10-17, per 100,000 juveniles

Data Source: The rates are calculated using the number of status offenses provided by the State of Hawaii Uniform Crime Statistics and estimates for the total population of juveniles ages 10-17 years provided by the National Center of Health Statistics. The data sources are as follows:

Attorney General, State of Hawaii. "Crime in Hawaii, various years: A Review of Uniform Crime Reports." Research & Statistics Branch: Crime Prevention & Justice Assistance Division.

National Center for Health Statistics. Ages 0 to 85 years and over. Vintage post-censal estimates of the resident population of the United States, by year, county, single-year of age (0, 1, 2, ..., 85 years and over), bridged race, Hispanic origin, and sex. Prepared under a collaborative arrangement with the U.S. Census Bureau. Available from: http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/bridged_race.htm.

Footnotes: Status offenses include noncriminal acts or conduct which are offenses only when committed or engaged in by juveniles, under 18 years of age. These include curfew violations and runaways. 

Regarding the denominators calculated using National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) Vintage postcensal estimates:  NCHS  populations are seasonally adjusted which means that every year, the estimates are revised to reflect updated input data and new NCHS population controls. The denominators using population esitmates are not updated retrospectively. The denominator for this indicator is based on 2017 Vintage postcensal NCHS estimates.
