Lead specialist dietician in South Wales Sioned Quirke said, although said there had been a "shift" in the past six months, the AWOP
had still not been fully adopted by any of Wales' seven Health Boards.
Again, the "AWOP"s are not included in the total number of opinions included in Table 1.
(301.) Oregon's response to Survey Question 15 indicates that total opinions were 1,680, and of those, 1,128 were 'affirm without opinion' ("AWOP").
Presumably, the reason why so few filings proceed to opinions in the Oregon Court of Appeals is the large number of affirmances without written opinions (AWOPs) issued by that court.
A large percentage of Oregon's published opinions are AWOPs. Connecticut does not identify the number of published opinions, but it did report that statute requires all appellate opinions to be published, so presumably all of its 528 opinions are published.
It is worth noting that this number is significantly higher and closer to statistical significance at the .1 level than the correlation was when calculated to include the number of AWOPs included in the number of total opinions (N = 8; r = .352; p = .392).
However, when the correlation between budget per case and court productivity was calculated to include AWOPs (in the measure of total productivity) a negative correlation was indicated (N = 8; r = -.
