"...legislative staff has utilized SAGE's State Stats to develop and populate many of the benchmarks included in Mississippi's statewide strategic plan...Local Stats is an excellent complement to State Stats. By providing statewide priority benchmark data at the county level, Local Stats allows legislative staff to better understand the geographic extent of our state's most challenging problems and thereby develop more targeted and effective solutions..." –James Barber, Deputy Director, Mississippi Joint Legislative PEER Committee
