Consumer Bankruptcy Case Filings

ProPublica's analysis of consumer bankruptcy filings used raw data on bankruptcy cases from the Department of Justice. The data is also available through ICPSR. The data used for ProPublica's analysis was limited to only cases filed between 2008 and 2015 that included consumer debts and were originally filed under either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13.
