Annotation: This collection reviews statistics on West German court transactions for 1988.
Abstract: The first section collates statistics on both lower and higher civil courts in each of the 11 West German Laender or States: number of inhabitants in each judicial district and types of offenses which came before the courts. Statistics on court personnel and prosecutors, which are usually included in this volume, were not available for 1988. A special section on family court activities covers such issues as types of transactions, types of sentences, duration of proceedings, and use of court cost assistance programs. The third section reports on the activities of criminal courts for each of the 11 West German Laender or States. It surveys felonies and misdemeanors which came before the lower and higher criminal courts. A special section is devoted to transactions by the Federal Supreme Court: a survey of cases which had been appealed to the court from 1951 to 1988; supreme court verdicts; and geographic origins of the appealed cases.
