Bankruptcy filings in the Central District of California – 2018

Reading the Central District Annual Report for 2018 on the subway.  What caught my eye was the filings by division for calendar year 2018.  Riverside filings are 71% of downtown filings – Riverside 11,191 to LA 15,670.  Riverside had more cases filed than Santa Ana, San Fernando Valley and Santa Barbara combined.   Filings in Santa Barbara are two-thirds the filings in the San Fernando Valley.

LA 15,670
SFV 3,243
Riv 11,191
SA 4,881
SB 2,207
Total 37,192

What portion you say of the total filings were chapter 13?

13
LA 15,670 3,767 24%
SFV 3,243 807 25%
Riv 11,191 2,373 21%
SA 4,881 882 18%
SB 2,207 418 19%
Total 37,192 8,247          22%

I would love to know what portion of those were confirmed.  This data tells us that Nancy Curry and Kathy Dockery split 3,767 cases (1,887 each); Rod Danielson got 2,373; Amrane Cohen, 882 and Liz Rojas, 1,225.

By the way, pro per filings were 16.4% of the total.  It was my impression that that number was much higher – in the 25-30% range.
