Bankruptcy cases filed, terminated, and pending from FY 2008 to present

The bankruptcy datasets in the IDB include all petitions filed under the Bankruptcy Code on or after October 1, 2007 and any petitions filed before October 1, 2007 still pending on that date. Each dataset corresponds to a “fiscal year snapshot” that includes one extract record for each unique case that was filed or terminated during that fiscal year, or was pending at the end of it. Each record in each fiscal year snapshot dataset contains both the filing and, if applicable, closing data for one unique case.

For records filed during the period and pending at the end of the period, the record contains the filing data but the closing data are blank.

For records filed prior to the current period and pending at the end of the period, the record contains the filing data but the closing data are blank.

For records filed during the period and closed during the period, the record contains both the filing data and the closing data.

For records filed prior to the current period and closed during the period, the record contains both the filing and the closing data.

Note: The bankruptcy datasets were revised and reposted in February 2018. Some fields which appeared in the 2008-2016 datasets have been removed, while a few new fields used to provide information about the status of the case at the time of filing have been added.  Datasets downloaded prior to February 2018 will have a different format than the revised datasets. For the most up to date format, please download the datasets below.
