After initial forecast modeling was done for each district, circuit, and for the nation as a whole, case filing volumes for 42 case categories were projected for 1979, 1984, and 1995. However, the large amount of information that resulted and the effort needed for maintenance and updating indicated the need for further refinement. In response to this need, this report describes modeling done for 20 case categories using a database consisting of:

  • Generalized indicators: a subset of the original social, economic, and demographic variables selected on the value of the information they contain.
  • Equivalent sets: a grouping of districts within a case category into sets that are consistent with respect to case filing activity over time.

The size of these results is much easier to integrate and can provide a working basis for extrapolation of models to predict future needs.

The study was developed by Battelle Pacific Northwest Laboratories, under contract to the Federal Judicial Center.

A summary of the first phase of the Center's project to develop a caseload forecasting model. The study concludes that indicator-based forecasts can and should be used to help allocate district court resources.

The goal of this study was forecasts of case filing volumes in federal district courts. The effort was interdisciplinary involving statisticians, computer scientists, political scientists, lawyers, and economists.

The conclusions of a panel of scholars and practitioners, commonly known as the Freund Commission Report, who were assembled to study the caseload of the Supreme Court, identify problems, and recommend jurisdictional and procedural changes to assist in remedying those problems. This is a transcript of the study group's December 19, 1972 press conference.
