Performance Measures


The Utah Judicial Council has implemented 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.


Assessments of the courts' accessibility and fairness based on court customer survey responses.

Juror yield is the number of citizens that served on a jury compared to the number of citizens selected from the jury pool.

The clearance rate is the number of disposed cases as a percentage of the number of filed cases in a given time period. In juvenile courts, the clearance rate is the number of adjudicated referrals as a percentage of the number of initiated referrals in a given time period.

In January 2013, the Utah Judicial Council adopted time to disposition guidelines suggesting 95% of case dispositions meet the established time goal. Time to Disposition is the courts' assessment of how long it should take to resolve each case type.

The average age of cases awaiting disposition.

The amount of outstanding restitution owed to victims and uncollected court-ordered fines and fees.

Surveys of court employees to measure positive work environments, staff engagement, and motivation to contribute to the mission of the Utah Courts.

Surveys conducted to determine public perceptions of the Utah State Courts.

Reports to provide taxpayers with an update on how Utah's juvenile justice system is performing.

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.
