Finding yourself short on public policy resources? Research hitting a dead end? A Michigan State University institution may be the missing piece. IPPSR takes a leading role in promoting and organizing policy-relevant research across the issue spectrum. But someone else at MSU also may be able to help.
Want to learn about environmental contamination, Michigan school locations, or concealed weapons permits? The State of Michigan makes many datasets publicly available for public use. Using data.michigan.gov, IPPSR has created a list of datasheets potentially useful for policy research and analysis. All datasets have an API making it easy for anyone to access and use this data.
