Note: Data are based on fiscal year (April 1st to March 31st). An application refers to a formal request, evidenced in writing, whereby a person applies to a legal aid office for assistance. Related legal matters enumerated at the time of contact with the office are included on one application. If a matter related to that on the original application arises at a later date (other than appeal), a new application is not filed. Separate applications are counted for criminal and civil matters. The total number of applications reported for the fiscal year include all such applications filed during that time, irrespective of when the application was approved or rejected. The count excludes requests for duty counsel services. When aggregated, the total number of applications reflects the number of individual requests for assistance, rather than the total number of persons seeking assistance.
