State Courts

  • State Court Civil Jury Trials Statistical Inquiry Form
    This page utilizes a sampling that comprises about 6.5 thousand state tort, contract, and real property cases terminated during fiscal 1992 by means of a jury trial in the general jurisdiction trial court of 45 of the nation's most populous counties. The data were gathered and assembled by the National Center for State Courts and disseminated by the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research.
    The data include the subject matter category (branches of tort, contract, and real property), the type of parties, the dates of filing and termination in the trial court, the procedural method of disposition, and who prevailed in what amount. The database is available to perform certain statistical analyses.
    To get further information that should help in defining the critical terms, you can click on the highlighted terms or go to the 920KB ICPSR state codebook readable with Adobe Acrobat Reader. Also, the appendices to that codebook include three articles, produced by the DOJ's Bureau of Justice Statistics, that use and explain this database.
