The Division of Local Services has come up with a brand new tool that makes searching the Municipal Data Bank much quicker and more focused.

The new Community Comparison Report is up and running, drawing on 65 data elements currently found in the Municipal Data Bank.

The beauty of this application is that users can customize their search using a dozen search criteria.

Let's say you are interested in the average property tax paid in communities of between 5,000 and 10,000 people.

The Community Comparison Report almost instantly will deliver the data which you can then export into an Excel Spreadsheet.

The application is an easy-to-use means of extracting comparative municipal finance and demographic data for multiple communities, which eliminates the often frustrating exercise of opening numerous spreadsheets and sorting, cutting and pasting data from each into a single spreadsheet. 

The latest edition of City and Town has more information on the new application and why it will make data searching easier.
