Not illustrated. 1920 edition. Excerpt: ...tables. pp. 15--19. See Preface to this study. For all cases of all races or nationalities, the greatest number are 9 to 14 years of age, with another smaller but distinctive group 13 to 16 years of age. The general average age for the whole group is 12.2 years. These figures show the juvenile cfienders in Gary younger than in many communities." This difference is partly due to the fact that this study is based on all the cases coming to the attention of the court and its oflicers, whereas figures for other communities are based on commitments or else on cases actually brought into the court, in both of which cases the age is naturally higher; partly due to the different kinds of courts Cealing with children (for example in Detroit, where in 1903 children were brought into the municipal court); and partly to the fact that in some communities (Chicago for example) truants, for whom the age is always low, are not included among juvenile delinquents. This Gary study includes a very large number of the less serious offenses committed especially by younger children who are not capable of committing the more serious offenses." The relation between age and kind of offense is even more striking. This study shows that the age of incorrigibility is 10 to 14 years, of confirmed truancy 9 to 13 years, of offenses against morals 14 to 16 years, of offenses against the person the numbers are too few to offer conclusions, of petit larceny the age is 9 to 16 years, and of all offenses against property the age is 9 to 16 years. The youngest cases are found in confirmed truancy followed in order by incorrigibility, petit larceny, and offenses against property, and offenses against morals, with almost no cases at all of juvenile age of more
