Excerpt from Annual Report of the Administrative Office of the Courts, 1973 As explained in the foreword to the 1971 and 1972 Annual Reports most of the comparative analysis for those years was based upon the data from the 83 counties where the court strue ture was constant throughout the period of comparison. Some of the bar graphs were based solely on a comparison of these83 counties. This year the distinction between Group I and Group II counties has been eliminated, since all 100 counties have been under the new structure for three full years. All com mentary, tables and graphs are based upon data from all 100 counties. Although Superior Court graphs permit a five year comparison, District Court graphs will thus permit only a three year comparison. Although there are a number of statistical indicators that may be used in evaluating court performance, there is no single barometer that gives a weighted average of all factors. The more obvious factors to weigh in making year-to-year comparisons and relative rankings between counties and judicial districts are filings, dispositions, and the number of cases pending at the end of the year. Other useful measures are the pending ratios (the relation that the number of cases pending at year's end bears to the number of cases disposed of during the year) and the rate of disposition (the percentage of the year's filings which were disposed of during the year). Low pending ratios and high rates of disposition are positive measures. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
