dc.description.abstract This slide show presentation presents recently collected data on disproportionate contact with the juvenile justice system of minority youth in Anchorage, Alaska. The data examine minority contact with local law enforcement and juvenile justice authorities at McLaughlin Youth Center. Disproportionate minority contact (DMC) occurs when the rate of referral for minority youth exceeds the rate of referral for white youth. DMC occurs for almost all non-white minority groups in Anchorage; it is more prevalent for Pacific, Native, and Black youth, both males and females, and more prevalent for referrals for probation/conduct violations, especially for females. en_US
