Michigan Public Policy Survey (MPPS) Fall 2017, Question 32b

Jurisdiction collects external data

Full Question Text

Some local governments collect internal data that measure their own operations (such as tons of trash collected, emergency response times, etc.). Some collect external data about other local governments for comparing their performance or costs against that of other units. Meanwhile, some local governments don’t collect data in either of these ways. What about your jurisdiction? Do you collect such data? (check all that apply)

b. Yes, we collect external data about other governments
