There are 1.5 million court cases filed in Indiana each year, and millions more pieces of data are created by trial courts, city and town courts, small claims courts and probation departments. The Indiana Supreme Court Division of State Court Administration (Division) is required to collect these extensive case statistics and financial data and compile them in an annual multiple-volume series called the Indiana Judicial Service Report.
Examples of data collected each year include:
In addition to reporting these statistics, the Division analyzes new case filings and judicial resources using Weighted Caseload Measurements (WCM). This allows the Division and trial judges to better understand workloads, and is one method used to compare the relative caseloads of one court to another. The WCM also helps ensure an even distribution of cases between judges and determine how much assistance courts need to handle heavy caseloads.
To compile and analyze these millions of pieces of data, the Judicial Technology & Automation Committee (JTAC) developed a secure web-based application that allows trial courts, small claims courts, detention centers, public defenders and probation departments to submit statistical and financial data electronically. In addition to electronic submission of data, this system will provide reports in real time on statistics and performance measures for court staff and the public.
Prior to 2007, all reports and forms—with the exception of the Quarterly Case Status Report (QCSR) — are completed manually by judges, clerks, and other court officers. Electronic versions of the forms can be downloaded from the Division’s website and typed, rather than handwritten, but data from the forms is still collected manually. The disadvantages of the old system include:
All courts are mandated to submit their forms through INcite.
Quarterly forms became available for entry on March 29, 2010
2009 Form Due Dates
Quarterly forms due January 10, 2010
Annual forms due January 20, 2010
Court Reporter Annual forms due March 31, 2010

Data collected was used to produce the 3 volume 2007 Judicial Service Report and 1 volume Probation Report
