Courts collect data to manage cases better (and the docket as a whole), to report to the public, to make decisions about resources, to inform policy, and to comply with reporting requirements. Too often the data we collect does not fit these purposes. This session shared how to identify the data you need to collect, how variations in data lifecycles should inform your collection timetable, what approaches improve the completeness and quality of your data, and above all, how to effectively use data to improve judicial administration.
