   §  2.  (a)  Such  study shall examine data collected from each munici-
 pality and village in the state over the prior three years  which  shows
 the  number of instances a property tax assessment was grieved, how many
 of such grievances resulted in a successful reduction  of  the  property
 tax  assessment and how many of such grievances resulted in no change to
 the property tax assessment.
   (b) With respect to the total  number  of  instances  a  property  tax
 assessment was grieved over the past three years, such study shall exam-
 ine  and breakdown of those instances how many times a property owner or
 purchaser represented themselves and how many times a property owner was
 represented by another individual in the  proceedings.    Further,  such
 study  shall  examine  how  many  instances in which a property owner or
 purchaser who was  representing  themselves  resulted  in  a  successful
 reduction  and  how many instances resulted in no change to the property
 tax assessment and how many instances where a property owner or purchas-
 er was represented  by  another  individual  resulted  in  a  successful
 reduction  and  how many instances resulted in no change to the property
 tax assessment.
