Michigan Public Policy Survey - Spring 2018 County-wide Poverty Fact Sheets

April 2019

The Spring 2018 County-wide Poverty Fact Sheets are from the Michigan Public Policy Survey (MPPS), an ongoing survey of the top elected and appointed officials in every unit of general purpose local government across the state. The MPPS is designed to gather local leaders’ opinions, inform state policymakers and others regarding local government issues, and show local leaders how peer communities around the state are dealing with a variety of challenges. While we typically report findings at a statewide level, because over 73% of the state’s local jurisdictions participate we are also able to show summarized data for all local governments within any county, while still protecting jurisdictions’ confidentiality.
