    * In 2005, Congress passed the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 (BAPCPA), which adjusted the requirements for filing for bankruptcy with the intention of reducing the number of bankruptcy cases. Before the new requirements took effect, a large number of bankruptcy cases were opened in 2005. Subsequent years did see a decrease in bankruptcy cases compared to 2005.

    Years Available: 2005–2018
