This chapter considers the two types of demographic measures that have caused concern over trends in youth crime in the next fifteen years. It examines available data on the number of adolescents, focusing on the age group thirteen to seventeen. It then addresses some concerns about the ethnicity and poverty of children. The last section examines the deterministic logic of these projections.

Keywords:   demographic measures, youth crime, adolescents, ethnicity, poverty, poor children
