Facts and Questions

What is Jurimetrics?

Jurimetrics is an information company which collects data from court, government and media sources, we then aggregate this information as analytics, tables and a feed on a web based platform.

Our Platform

We have recently completed a working demo of our Platform which collects information from the Western Australian legal system as well as selected government registries and media sources and visualises this information as a feed, tables and graphs.

How can I search for data?

You can search for companies, law firms and government agencies by accessing the demo and typing into the search bar on the top left hand side. A series of search matches will drop down from the search bar organised by type (Law firm, Party, Counsel or Judge). Simply click on the entity that you are searching for.

What datasets do you have available?

  • The last 10 years from the Western Australian State Administrative Tribunal, Supreme Court and District Court.
  • ASIC’s Markets Disciplinary Panel register

Accuracy

We think the data we provide is as about as accurate as a human would be if they read all the documents and compiled statistics by hand according to a detailed set of rules. Of course, there are pitfalls in using software to read old, and potentially poorly formatted legal documents, which means that there may be some records which appeared in the source documents that don’t appear in our system. Our internal tests place this figure at around 3-4% of source records being unreadable.

You might also notice that sometimes an has multiple different names in our system. Sadly, the complexity of the real world means that an entity might well go by many different names or due to the inconsistencies between government departments, variations of the same name. We have processes in place to deal with that as best as we can, including using edit-distance based text-matching between entities and lists of canonical names, such as the Australian Business Registry.

Accuracy is something that we’re always working to improve, but due to the realities of the data we work with explained above, we cannot warrant that the data and statistics you see are 100% accurate. They should be used as a guide and you should seek independent advice before relying on the data.

Have some feedback, we’d love to hear it!
