**Statistics for the District Courts, starting in 2007, are produced through the Central Court Repository, maintained by the Supreme Court Administrator’s Office. In 2007, the District Courts were in the middle of a transition to a new, modern case management system so statistics were gathered from the legacy case management system and the new case management system. Questions can be directed to the Supreme Court Administrator's Office at 406-841-2950.

The District Court Workload study measures the number of judges needed to adequately manage the caseload in an individual judicial district. The numbers are based on a time-study conducted in 2006 by the National Center for State Courts. The Workload Study, updated each year, sets the standard for resource allocation in the District Courts.
