The Local Government Performance Measurement survey results do not provide an evaluation or imply judgment on the appropriate level of service for jurisdictions. There are many factors that influence the comparability of the data and each jurisdiction provides service based on a unique set of needs, circumstances, and priorities. Additionally, the results include responses only from self-selected local governments – those who chose to complete the survey. Therefore, the data (including the mean and median statistics) should not be interpreted as representative of local governments in the St. Louis region.
