Rate of arrests for drug-related offenses among juveniles aged 10–17, per 100,000 juveniles
The rates are calculated using the number of drug-related offenses provided by the State of Hawaii Uniform Crime Statistics and estimates for the total population of juveniles aged 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 2016 post-censal estimates of the resident population of the United States (April 1, 2010, July 1, 2010 - July 1, 2016), 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 as of June 26, 2017, following release by the U.S. Census Bureau of the unbridged Vintage 2016 post-censal estimates by 5-year age group on June 22, 2017.
Offenses included in the count include those which fall under the categories of drug manufacturing/sale and under drug possession.
The number of arrests prior to 2005 included all children under the age of 18 as the source data was not broken down by age. Since the number of arrests involving children under 10 years old was usually none or very small in any particular year, the juvenile arrest rate was calculated based on the juvenile population 10-17 years old.
