The local government fiscal crisis — driven largely by state revenue sharing cuts, falling tax revenues, and rising costs to provide services — has pushed jurisdictions in Michigan to search for operational efficiencies and cost savings. Performance measurement and data-driven decision-making are strategies some local governments use to help navigate the difficult decisions they face today. This report presents Michigan local government leaders’ assessments of the use of data in their governments’ decision-making. The findings are based on statewide surveys of local government leaders in the Fall 2011 wave of the Michigan Public Policy Survey (MPPS).
