Judicial Branch Administration: Judicial Branch Statistical Information System (JBSIS) Data Quality Control Standards (Action Required)

Summary

Summary

The Court Executives Advisory Committee recommends that the

Judicial Council adopt policy guidelines for courts reporting

aggregated statistical information to the Judicial Branch Statistical

Information System (JBSIS). JBSIS is the statistical reporting system

that defines and electronically collects summary information from

superior court case management systems for each major case processing

area of the court. The recommendation will institute protocols for

data amendments for courts that encounter errors in data reporting

and will establish a mechanism for courts to share best practices for

data quality controls. This recommendation is intended to improve

confidence in and the consistency of JBSIS data reporting. If approved,

the policy will become part of the updated JBSIS manual, which has

been submitted for council adoption in a separate proposal.
