The aim of this study is to compare the administrative capacity of municipalities with populations of 100,000 to 250,000 in Central Anatolia (Turkey) and the State of Arizona (the United States of America), and to make recommendations for improving the administrative capacity of each municipality. In this context, the concept of administrative capacity is defined as “municipalities’ ability to regulate, develop and manage the physical, financial, human and information resources allocated to them in order to provide the necessary services to their citizens.” Data was collected from sample municipalities in the Central Anatolia Region of Turkey and the state of Arizona through interviews with municipal leaders (manager, director etc.) and a questionnaire about their perceptions.
