Wichita is one of many cities across the United States to participate in The National Citizen Survey™ this year. Questionnaires have been mailed to a random sample of 1200 households, asking for feedback on the quality and usefulness of City services. Surveys should be completed and returned by Monday, December 3. The results will be included in a final report that City officials can use to guide future decisions. Survey results will be available January 11, 2013.
The National Citizen Survey™ is sponsored by the International City/County Management Association in cooperation with National Research Center, Inc. The questionnaire and survey procedure were designed based on the experience of hundreds of local governments, ranging in size from small to large. Scientific sampling and weighting of the responses in each city ensure accurate and reliable results. Because each city's survey is developed using a standard template, and many cities can be surveyed at one time, The National Citizen Survey™ is a very efficient way to measure citizen opinion. In the seven years since its inception, the National Citizen Survey™ has been administered to 289 cities and counties. The City of Wichita participated in the National Citizen Survey™ in 2006 and 2010.
