The purpose of this data collection is to provide an official public record of the business of the federal bankruptcy courts. The data include all petitions filed under the Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Courts on or after October 1, 1993, and any petitions filed before October 1, 1993, that were still pending on that date. The records are organized according to the fiscal year of termination with cases still pending at the end included in a separate pending dataset. The records in Part 1, Terminations Data, 2003, include cases that terminated in the year 2003. Part 2, Pending Data, 2003, contains cases still pending in the year 2003. For the bankruptcy data, the unit of analysis is a single case.
