Annual Resident Survey Sent to 1,200 Palo Alto Households

Palo Alto, CA – Over the next two weeks, 1,200 Palo Alto households will receive a survey questionnaire asking for feedback on the quality and usefulness of City Services. Conducted annually, Palo Alto's 2013 Citizen Survey is administered through the National Research Center and coordinated by the City Auditor’s Office. The survey is developed from a National Citizen Survey template to help provide consistency and comparisons across the more than 250 municipalities in 44 states who participate. The questionnaire and survey procedure were designed based on the experience of hundreds of local governments of all sizes. Scientific sampling and weighting of the responses in each city ensure accurate and reliable results.

The City encourages those selected households to participate and voice their opinions. The survey results will be published when they are available later this fall.
