Clearance Rates 

​ ​Why it Matters

​Clearance Rates

​Clearance rates measure the extent to which a court is keeping up with its incoming caseload.  It compares the number of outgoing cases to the number of incoming cases.  A rate of more than 100 percent demonstrates that the court is reducing the pending caseload; a rate of less than 100 percent indicates the court is adding to its pending caseload.  Clearance rates naturally fluctuate above and below 100 percent, but clearance rates that are consistently under 100 percent can lead to backlogs.
