Miller, Ted; Fisher, Deborah A.; Cohen, Mark A.
Pediatrics, v107 n1 p1-7 Jan 2001
Investigated the magnitude of juvenile violence in Pennsylvania in terms of victimization and perpetration. Used archival data on violent crimes in Pennsylvania during 1993 to develop cost estimates reflecting the costs incurred by society for both victims and perpetrators. Overall, violence against children and adolescents proved to be a much larger problem than violence committed by youth. (SM)
