Arizona’s Administrative Office of the Courts recently announced the development of interactive data dashboards, which will serve as a valuable resource for identifying court trends.
These dashboards offer at-a-glance views and the ability to compare and analyze court data – from court caseload statistics, to filings and terminations, financial data, judicial productivity credits, and more. There are 30 dashboards available to the public, located on the Arizona Judicial Branch’s website.
The 30 dashboards are accessible through nine tiles on the website. Five of the tiles lead to single dashboards and four tiles lead to sets of multiple dashboard pages.
The single dashboards provide data on Superior Court Filings & Termination, Limited Jurisdiction Court Filings and Terminations, Judicial Productively Credits (JPC), and two dashboards that provide year-over-year monthly comparisons for Revenue Collections and Traffic Filings.
A total of 25 dashboards are viewable from within four other tiles: Justice Court Evictions, Superior Court Felony Filings, Orders of Protection, and Superior Court Pending Cases. The Orders of Protection and Superior Court Pending Cases tiles are the newest-added tiles.
The Orders of Protection tile includes six dashboards including the number of Order of Protection petitions by calendar year (CY), county, month, and disposition, as well as petition population rate (per 100K) and monthly comparisons between CY 2020 and 2019. The data includes lower jurisdiction courts and does not currently include data from the Superior Court.
The Superior Court Pending Cases tile includes seven dashboards showing the number of Superior Court cases pending at end of the month for selected periods. The percent distribution of pending cases is reported by pending status and category and the number of pending cases is reported by case categories and case types, as well as by subtypes for criminal, civil, and domestic relation cases.
Interactive, public access data dashboards will continue expanding over time. This is part of the judicial branch’s data-based decision making, a sub-goal of Chief Justice Robert Brutinel’s five- year strategic agenda.
