Posts Tagged ‘National Citizen Survey’

Every other year for the past 12 years, the City of Decatur has surveyed its residents through the National Research Center (NRC.) Last week the NRC sent out a postcard notification announcing the 2018 survey to a random sample of Decatur residents. If you don’t receive a postcard in the coming days, you are not one of the 1,500 households randomly chosen this time.

The actual survey will be sent out twice on February 9 and February 16 to the random sample. The survey is completely anonymous and we only get the final tabulations from NRC. If you are one of the lucky ones to receive the survey, please make sure to fill it out and send it back via mail or online. We’ve had a 40% response rate for the past six surveys, which is fantastic but we want more!

If you’d like a better idea of what the final tabulations look like, click here to view and download the 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2016 survey results. The data from the survey is used by the City in its budgeting, strategic and annual planning processes.

If you have any questions regarding the survey, contact City Clerk Meredith Roark at meredith.roark@decaturga.com or call 404-370-4102.

If you were one of the lucky 1,500 residents randomly selected to receive the 2016 Citizen Survey and you have not mailed it back in yet, there is still time. Survey responses are being collected through tomorrow via mail postmarked March 11, 2016 or by using the link to the online version of the form.

If you didn’t receive a survey this year but still want to be a part of the action, head on over to the City’s Open City Hall forum to register your opinion about the City’s “Complete Streets” policy, Police Department community program offerings and the establishment of a community advisory board relating to diversity, inclusion and equity. The citizen survey topics will close on March 18th.
