The purpose of this article is to present a summary of research resultsrelating to the application of the dominance-based rough set DRSA approach tothe selection of projects in the context of the Northern Quebec developmentplan. Based on this research, decision makers will be able to rankmunicipalities according to their actual needs in social and economic terms. Webelieve that public administrators will be able to use various socio-economicindicators in order to classify, based on chosen criteria, municipalitiesobjects in one of the following four categories: A―the best in the region in terms of thecriteria considered; B―those that need support in order to acquire category A status; C―those that need support in order to acquirecategory B status; D― those ranked lowest in the region and needingspecial support with regard to the criterion or criteria considered. These fourcategories are delimited by quartiles relative to the average ranking ofmunicipalities. The chosen criteria are measured in order to provide decisionrules based on this classification. These decision rules thus focus on thesocial and economic needs of municipalities with respect to improving theirperformance and classification. By targeting these needs, DRSA will help administratorsof the Northern Quebec development plan to prioritize actions or to evaluate,for example the social and economic impact of a project in a municipality.
