Welcome to the State of the State Survey (SOSS) Data. This is a ongoing resource which allows policymakers, MSU faculty, and SOSS sponsors to tap into the perceptions of Michigan adults on a quarterly basis.

The Institute for Public Policy and Social Research at Michigan State University administers SOSS and this archive through its Office for Survey Research. We encourage use of the data for publications and news releases.
