Footnotes:

  1. Many jurisdictions allow defendants to post a fraction, usually 10%, of the total monetary bail amount imposed. This is taken into account in the calculation of the Measure, whenever the information is available. Therefore, the Measure is calculated based on the amount defendants would have to post to be released.

  2. Wisconsin has completely abolished the practice of commercial bail bonding. Cash bonds must be paid in full for defendants to be released pretrial.

  3. Percentage of cases that had missing/unknown data on any of the factors needed for inclusion in the measure.
