Explore the Data

The CSP Team has created three different tools for you to investigate and compare state courts.

  1. The CSP Interactive Tool provides access to state court caseload data, when available, for the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Guam. You will be able to sort and filter caseload data by year, and state, and compare across states.
  2. State Court Organization: A comparative look at state court characteristics presents detailed comparative data about how state trial and appellate courts are organized and administered in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the territories of Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, and Virgin Islands. With topics ranging from the types of courts established in each state to specific aspects of law or procedure, State Court Organization is the source for authoritative answers to fundamental questions about the operations of each state’s court system.
  3. State Court Structure Charts summarizes in one-page diagrams the key features of each state’s court organization. The format meets two objectives: (1) it is comprehensive, indicating all court systems in the state and their interrelationship, and (2) it describes the jurisdiction of the court systems.
