Increasing Transparency Initiatives Through Analytics: A case study from Maryland StateStat

Kate M. Long

Maryland StateStat is a program based on the CitiStat program implemented in New York City in the nineties to battle the rampant crime and civic issues by collecting data and then analyze it in order to create programs to remedy them. Maryland StateStat was implemented by Governor Martin O’Malley of Baltimore, a city plagued by many of the same issues as NYC had previously experienced. O’Malley wanted to run government like a business in the sense that local agencies would have more concrete awareness of its resources and functions.
