Wouldn't it be nice if you could read your residents' minds? Before making decisions about that new road construction project or the selection of a trash haul contractor, conducting a policy survey is a quick and cost-effective way to gauge how they will react.
In a 9/6 web conference, National Research Center's Thomas Miller, Ph.D., and Shannon Hayden, M.A., will teach you when to use a policy survey, how to write questions, data collection options, how to get a good sample, and how to analyze and report results.
Miller and Hayden, along with Michelle Kobayashi , authored Citizen Surveys for Local Government: A comprehensive guide to making them matter, published in 2009 by ICMA. Miller is the president of National Research Center Inc., the organization that worked with ICMA to produce the National Citizen Survey. Hayden, a senior research associate at National Research Center, has been involved in more than 100 survey, evaluation, and research projects.
