Description
  • Abstract

    This data collection contains information for all 50 states on the major developments in the selection of state judges and the administration of each state court system. The data include the age of the state administrator's office, the percentage of court administrative staffers per total number of judges in trial courts, the salary of the state court administrator, and the percentage of total state expenditures allocated to court management. In addition, the court systems are rated according to eight indexes, including the Berkson/Carbon Consolidation and Simplification of Trial Court Structure Index and the 1967 Procedural Rule-Making Power Index.
