During the past few years, an increasing amount of research has been conducted on the subject of computers and information management in small local governments. These are defined as cities of less than 50,000 population and counties of less than 100,000. Much of this research has been conducted within single states or multi-state regions in the United States. One of its primary purposes seems to have been to assist in the development of training and technical assistance programs on computers and information management for small local. governments.
