* Note that this calculation provides a maximum level of minutes per matter since no allowance is made for personal vacation time, sick leave, or other duties and responsibilities not directly related to the processing of individual matters. Because of the many factors that influence the amount of time required to adequately deal with each matter brought before an immigration judge, simple case counts of matters received present a highly imperfect measure of how workload demands have changed over time. Calculated on the basis of 2000 annual hours per judge.
