Information about claims paid by the City of Albuquerque each year.
The summary page lists the total amounts paid out to close claims in the listed years. It also reports the number of claims that were closed in each year.
There is also a graph for each year that illustrates the percentage of the total payout for each of the coverage types that we reported on. The percentages change from year to year because the value of the individual claims settled in the year are variable. For instance in 2011 we closed a Land Use claim for $11 million that amounted to 56% of the total payout. In most years the percentage paid on Land Use claims is zero. We get very few of these claims and only close one occasionally.
