These are not performance measures, but provide some context for the rest of the data. For child protective cases, this table contains the number of new petitions.

2012 Case Age Rates
The case age rates measure the percentage of cases disposed or resolved within the guideline. A court may have zero cases pending over the

rates, please see the Appendix at the end of the Case Age Rates Section.
