Central Illinois has seen a 14 percent decrease in bankruptcy filings in the most recent fiscal year that ended on Sept. 30.
According to records from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Springfield, this is the first time in three years that the bankruptcy filings have been under 10,000. Similar percentage decreases have been seen across the nation.
The type of bankruptcy that has had the least amount of filings is Chapter 11 reorganization. Officials have said that the amount of bankruptcy filings tends to fall during a down economy.
