Utah Courts Performance Measures


In 2004, the Utah Judicial Council began implementing a court performance measurement system developed in part by the National Center for State Courts. The performance management system helps courts identify and monitor important performance measures and make improvements to better serve the needs of the public. The measures currently monitored on this website include:

Performance Measure Reports

Access and Fairness in the Courts Results of surveys of court users in Utah courthouses
Effective Use of Jurors Counts of citizens qualified, summonses and called for jury service
Clearance Rate The number of court cases being completed or disposed of as a percentage of court cases being filed
Time to Disposition The time being taken to complete or dispose of types of court cases
Age of Active Pending Cases Counts of pending court cases and length of time they have been pending
Capacity Index Measure of a courts capacity to dispose of cases in a given time period
Restitution, Fines and Fees The amounts of restitution, fines and fees being collected by courts and sent for collection
Court Employee Satisfaction Summaries of court employee surveys
Related Performance Information Additional Performance Information related to the courts

The mission of the Utah Courts is to provide the people an open, fair, efficient, and independent system for the advancement of justice under the law.
