Juvenile crime is and was a relevant subject in New Zealand and internationally for many years

Juvenile crime is and was a relevant subject in New Zealand and internationally for many years, and I was intrigued as to what, when, where and why juveniles commit crimes, therefore I selected the subject of “Juvenile crime in New Zealand”. My main research inquiry question is “What were the major causes of juvenile crime in New Zealand in the past 10 years?” My key questions are: “How are juvenile offenders sentenced in New Zealand and is sentencing effective for preventing reoffending?”, “What were the most common ethnicity/ies and age/s of juvenile offenders in New Zealand in the past 10 years?”, “What were the most common type/s of crime among juveniles in New Zealand in the past 10 years?”, and “Who are considered juveniles in New Zealand?”
