Required data elements for courts are promulgated to ensure the quality, completeness, and consistency of Arizona court data across the judicial branch for case management, allocation of resources, and data integration projects between the courts and other justice system stakeholders.  We want to identify and report on the data that judges and court leaders find most useful and ensure the data that is required for data integration is being collected correctly. We hope to improve the accuracy of our court data with effective training and auditing.

For years, courts around the country have shared concerns about data consistency, data quality and data misinterpretation by outside groups and the media. The National Center for State Courts (NCSC) in consultation with other organizations developed the National Open Court Data Standards, abbreviated as NODS.  Please click on the NODS graphic above to be taken to NCSC's NODS webpage.
