Pathways through youth justice supervision published by the Australian Institute for Health and Welfare explores the types of youth justice supervision experienced by particular cohorts of young people based on data available from the Juvenile Justice National Minimum Data Set (JJ NMDS) from 2000–01 to 2012–13.
The report finds that the top 10 pathways accounted for nearly three quarters (71%) of young people who experienced supervision. It also finds that young males, young Indigenous people, those aged 10–14 at first supervision and those experiencing sentenced detention at some point were more likely than their counterparts to have more complex and varied pathways through supervision.
