The purpose of Examining the Work of State Courts is to make state court statistics highly accessible. This year, we have continued our evolution as both a print and Web publication by moving more content to the Web. The print version provides an overview of state court caseloads, while detail previously found in print is now published on this site.

The analysis presented here is based on the data provided by staff of the Administrative Offices of the Courts and the Appellate Court Clerks’ Offices. Statewide aggregate caseload data and reporting practices, population trends, and a detailed explanation of the Court Statistics Project methodology are available on this site.
