Business bankruptcy filings were up more than 5 percent in the Middle District of Pennsylvania in the second quarter of the year, according to statistics released from the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts.

Filings rose from 52 in the first quarter to 55 in the second quarter for the district of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, which includes most of Central Pennsylvania and northeastern Pennsylvania.

Chapter 7 filings were down from 32 to 29, but Chapter 13 filings rose from nine to 13. Chapter 11 and Chapter 12 filings were mostly flat.

Total bankruptcy filings — which include personal bankruptcy filings — increased more than 7 percent from 1,511 to 1,626.

Lancaster County is the only county in the midstate not included in the Middle District. It is in the Eastern District, which saw business bankruptcy filings rise more than 15 percent, from 84 to 97. The district includes the Philadelphia area and the Lehigh Valley.

Total bankruptcies in the Eastern District rose about 10 percent from 2,575 to 2,837.
