CountyStat


CountyStat is the performance management and data analytics team for Montgomery County (MD) Government. Established in 2007 under the Office of County Executive and shifted to the Office of Management and Budget in 2020, CountyStat uses an outcome-focused performance framework to strategically monitor, assess, and improve the effectiveness and efficiency of County services. Employing analytics skills and tools, CountyStat leverages administrative and public data to help County departments solve problems and develop targeted action plans and strategies to deliver results for our residents.


Beyond our oversight role, CountyStat’s work as internal consultants ranges from one-off analyses to long-term strategic initiatives, ensuring that our organization thoughtfully uses data to make smarter decisions and achieve better outcomes – and champions accountability and transparency. CountyStat also serves as a forum to convene stakeholders to promote collaboration across organizational boundaries and address cross-cutting multi-departmental efforts that share a common goal.


Collectively, our work is designed to ensure, on behalf of County leadership, the development and growth of a culture of “managing for results” in Montgomery County.
