Table 11 shows that park districts are more likely to employ certified
professionals than parks and recreation departments, 52% compared to 41%. This
would suggest that the benefits that structure of government has upon total services
is indirect.
Park districts have larger budgets and employ professionally trained
administrators in higher percentages, both of which lead to higher levels of services.
But as Table 8 shows, structure of government is not sufficient as an explanation of
service levels.
