The chapter examines the state government agencies tasked with producing analysis, planning and providing data and economic indicators. These agencies’ development is examined in historical perspective and associated with political and economic cycles, as a response to federal government inducement, as an endogenous strategy by state governments to strengthen local development or as a result of support from international institutions leveraged especially by public universities in Brazil. With re-democratisation, these agencies’ expectations of power gains were frustrated by the leading role that experts came to play in policymaking and also by state governments’ federative conflicts with the federal government, formerly the base from which these agencies drew local legitimacy.
