This report highlights findings from a study conducted by NCJJ that examines the prevalence of multi-system involvement among youth referred to the King County Juvenile Court on delinquency matters in 2006. The study found that about two-thirds of all youth referred on a delinquency matter had some form of child welfare involvement and that such involvement is correlated topoorer juvenile justice outcomes including time spent in detention and recidivism. These outcomes, particularly for youth of color and females, worsened among youth who had more extensive child welfare system involvement.
