Notes 2022

  • A new statistical reporting system was adopted in 2022, which may impact how cases are counted. Caution should be used when comparing pre-2022 data to post-2022 data.
  • Blank rows on reports indicate no data for the reporting period. Reports may appear blank if there is no data for any row within a report

Notes 2016-19

  • The caseload summary, clearance rate and juvenile caseload summary calculate the "disposed" column differently than all other reports.
  • The caseload summary row "criminal traffic" includes all criminal traffic and misdemeanor traffic cases (CM and CT). Felony traffic is included in the "felony" row.
  • For additional information regarding JIPS case numbers, please contact us at the contact information above.
  • The felony disposition summary report, weapons and explosive category, for 2016 and 2017 does not accurately reflect the number of weapons and explosive cases. This is due to a coding error following 2015 Act 109. Cases affected by Act 109 will be reflected in the other felony case category for 2016 and 2017. If you have any questions, please contact us here.
