Statistics (Infographics)

Bar statistics dating back to February 2012, based on figures quoted by state bars.

Some states adapt their scores after initial publication in the annual NCBE report. I update the maps annually after the NCBE report is published. Until that time, the previous year (e.g. 2019 at present) is based on initial reports and may change.

*Please note I collect these statistics, but there may be mistakes in some areas. For example, I may calculate the scores myself based on number of pass or fail posted.
