This website offers a half dozen comparison metrics for each town. It is interesting to see how we compare. http://www.cleargov.com/massachusetts/norfolk/town/medfield/
The Pioneer Institute does the same thing too, but with much more robust data and in a more refined means. http://pioneerinstitute.org/better_government/new-municipal-guide-provides-tools-for-local-budgeting/ The Pioneer Institute gives you an Excel spreadsheet that you can use to compare us to similar towns on a large variety of budget costs, and they even suggest the similar towns. This is the one to use to do serious work.
