The Magistrates' Court Statistics provides results of the judicial activity of the Magistrates' Courts in the Civil and Criminal areas, excluding, since 2007, the possible activity linked to the functions of the Civil Registry.

On the Civil area, the movement of issues incurred in the year (admitted and decided cases) as well as the typology of matters resolved (oral proceedings, civil judicial assistance, acts of conciliation and other matters) are studied. In criminal area, the movement of matters incurred (admitted and decided cases) and the typology of the resolved cases (criminal judicial assistance and other matters) are studied.

This statistical operation is undertaken in collaboration with the General Council of the Spanish Judiciary by virtue of the Agreement signed by the National Statistics Institute and this body on 14 February 1995, and subsequent addenda.
