ABI’S NEW INTERACTIVE STATISTICS PAGE
PROVIDES BETTER TOOLS FOR EXAMINING BANKRUPTCY STATISTICS
May 6, 2010, Alexandria, Va.— The American Bankruptcy
Institute (ABI) has created new online interactive charts, graphs and
other easy-to-use tools to allow members of the public to gather
statistical information on bankruptcy filings dating back to 1980. The
new interactive charts improve upon the information currently on
ABI’s “Bankruptcy Statistics” page by providing the
user the ability to easily select and search bankruptcy statistical
information provided by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts.
Users may research filings by chapter of the Bankruptcy Code (7, 11, 12
or 13), type (consumer or business), state, circuit, year or some
combination of these search categories.
Please click the following link to view ABI’s new interactive
statistics page: http://www.abiworld.org/bkstats/index.html
The interactive website provides instructions on the home page and
individual instructions for the four different sections. The easy-to-use
interactive features also allow you to generate data from the graphs,
convert information to a PDF document or Excel chart, or to create an
image. If you need any assistance using this webpage or would like to
reproduce this information in electronic or written format, please
contact John Hartgen at 703-894-5935 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
