Abstract

This paper examines the overall effectiveness of financial impact analysis (FIA) in local government based on a survey of 48 municipalities in Ontario with populations over 25,000. The findings reveal that despite the usefulness of FIA as an evaluative technique for municipal expenditures and revenues, it remains an unpopular tool for local government administrators in the province.
