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 [email protected]
