Michigan Public Policy Survey (MPPS)


The Michigan Public Policy Survey (MPPS) is a program of state-wide surveys of local government leaders in Michigan. The MPPS is a census-style survey, sent to the chief elected official and the chief appointed official in every county, city, township, and village in Michigan. Surveys are conducted twice per year, on a wide range of topics. The program is conducted in partnership with the Michigan Association of Counties, Michigan Municipal League, and Michigan Townships Association. The research findings are disseminated to a wide range of stakeholders to inform debate and discussion on public policy issues throughout the state.
