Juristat Filter Dictionary

Juristat puts the entire USPTO patent data set at your fingertips.

Below, we summarize the different filters available in our Intelligence and Table views. Mix and match these filters to discover a list of applications most relevant to your current search.

Application Number

  • Enter up to 1000 applications to filter to a set of applications you care about most.

Patent Number

  • Enter up to 1000 patent numbers to filter to a set of patented applications you care about most.

Attorney Docket Number

  • Enter up to 1000 attorney docket numbers to filter to a set of applications you care about most.

Publication Number

  • Enter up to 1000 publication numbers to filter to a set of applications you care about most.

Publication Status

  • Without using this filter, you are viewing all published USPTO applications.

  • Filtering to “Granted Unpublished” allows you to see applications that were filed with a non-publication request that are now granted and publicly available.

  • Filtering to "Published" will exclude applications that were filed with a non-publication request.

  • Filtering to "Granted Unpublished" will filter to applications that were filed with a non-publication request, but were then published when granted.

Status

  • The status filter enables you to filter to one or multiple types of applications with a specific status.

  • “Abandoned” includes all applications that have received an abandonment.

  • “Allowed” includes all applications that have received a notice of allowance.

  • “Disposed” includes all applications with either a notice of allowance or an abandonment.

  • “Issued” includes all applications that have been issued.

  • “Pending” includes all applications that are currently pending.

  • If an application changes statuses, the change in status will be reflected in Juristat. For example, an application is allowed, the issue fee is never paid, and the application is then abandoned. That application will now be counted under both allowed and abandoned because it received both an NOA and an ABN.

Unnecessary Appeals (Beta metric)

  • Filter applications based on the number of unnecessary appeals.

  • An unnecessary appeal is classified as an appeal that reaches the briefing stage when the examiner’s appeal win rate was less than or equal to the interview win rate and no interview was conducted. Appeal briefs are required since many notices of appeal are filed by applicants with no intention of filing a substantive appeal.

Missed Interview (Beta metric)

  • Filter applications based on whether or not the application had a missed interview.

  • A missed interview is classified as a pending application which has four or more office actions with no interview, or an abandoned application with no interview conducted, where the examiner’s interview win rate is greater than or equal to the examiner’s RCE win rate.

Missed Continuation (Beta metric)

  • Filter applications based on whether or not the application had a missed continuation.

  • A missed continuation is classified as an allowed or pending application that was/is in front of an examiner with allowance rates equal to or greater than 90% where no continuation or continuation-in-part has been filed.

Unnecessary Office Actions

  • Filter to applications based on the number of unnecessary office actions.

  • An unnecessary office action is classified as the total number of office actions issued in excess of the maximum office actions for any previously allowed application in front of the application’s examiner. This metric is only for abandoned applications. For example, if an examiner has never issued an allowance after the 6th office action, and the application at issue has 8 office actions and then an abandonment, that application would have two unnecessary office actions (8 minus 6).
