Clearance rate (CR) is a ratio of the number of resolved cases to the number of the new cases within a period, in percentage (a CR of 100%  shows that the court manages to resolve the equal amount of cases as received, and above 100 % means that the number of pending cases decreases). This indicator shows how the court manages to resolve incoming cases.

Disposition time (DT) is a ratio of the number of resolved cases during the observed period to the number of unresolved cases at the end of the observed period. 365 is divided by the number of resolved cases divided by the number of unresolved cases at the end, to be able to express it in a number of days. The ratio measures how quickly the judicial system (of the court) turns over received cases – that is, how long it takes for a type of cases to be resolved. This indicator provides further insight into how a judicial system manages its flow of cases.

Resolved cases per judge and court advisor is a ratio of the number of resolved cases in a period on specific court or type of court, to the number of judges and court advisors who were resolving cases during the observed period. This indicator is used to compare efficiency of courts taking into account their size (number of employees who resolve cases).
