* Incomplete data. Reports submitted for less than a full year
1 Actions for damages excess of $25,000 for physical injury to persons and property, and actions for wrongful death related to motor vehicle accidents.

2 Actions for damages in excess of $25,000 for physical injury to persons and property, and actions for wrongful death not related to motor vehicle accidents.

3 All civil matters with values of $25,000 or less, except small claims.

4 Due to trial court unification, AOC felony reporting practices changed starting with the Court Statistics Report published in 2001. Each felony is now counted as only one filing and one disposition for each defendant throughout all stages of criminal proceedings. This change eliminated the double counting of defendants who were held to answer, were certified on guilty pleas, or waived preliminary examinations. The result is the reporting of fewer filings and dispositions than under previous reporting practices.
