Folder Description

Summary:  View help for Summary
The Fall 2012 MPPS was the eighth wave in the MPPS survey program. The primary focus of the survey was on how local jurisdictions engage with their citizens and how citizens engage with the jurisdictions' officials and employees. This survey ran from October 8 to December 11, 2012 and received responses from 72% of jurisdictions. 

In order to protect respondent confidentiality, we have divided the data collected in the Fall
2013 Michigan Public Policy Survey into separate datasets focused on different topics that
were covered in the survey. Each dataset contains only variables relevant to that subject, and
the datasets cannot be linked together. A more complete dataset, containing all questions asked in Fall 2012 is available for researchers through openICPSR's Virtual Data Enclave.
