Every other year for the past 10 years, the City of Decatur has surveyed its residents through the National Research Center (NRC.) Today the NRC sent out a postcard notification announcing the 2016 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 households randomly chosen this time.
The actual survey will be sent out twice on February 5 and February 12 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 five 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 and 2014 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 Budget & Performance Measurement Manager Meredith Roark at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 404-370-4102.
