Other references to the MMP or its survey methodology can be taken
from our website at your discretion. For example, consider reporting
that the survey questionnaire is available on this website. When
citing our website, refer only to the address specified above and
not to specific menus within it, as the website design may change
over time. There is no need to use quotes when copying text from
the MMP website.
THE MMP DATA BASE: MMP174
We ask you to cite the current MMP database as "MMP174."
For your reference, the number 174 stands for the number of communities
included in the database. It does not represent the number of
communities included in a user's own work. Thus, in case you
decide to discard data from one or more entire communities,
we still ask you not to change this reference and cite your
original data source as "MMP174."
IF YOU ARE USING A PREVIOUS VERSION OF THE DATA BASE...
MMP170 was released on February 2019. If you are using the previous
version of the MMP Data Base, which contained 161 communities,
we ask you to refer to it as "MMP161."
