Gaithersburg to Conduct Biennial Citizen Survey Randomly Selected Households will Receive Questionnaire Soon
Within the next few weeks 1,200 City of Gaithersburg residents will be randomly selected to participate in a scientifically sampled mail-in survey to evaluate City services, programs and policies. The results of the National Citizen Survey™ will be available in January, and will be used to help elected officials and City staff prioritize strategic initiatives and direct resources. The last survey was conducted in the fall of 2009.
Surveys will only be available to randomly selected residents, and can be provided in Spanish upon request. Residents who receive notification in the mail that they’ve been selected are strongly encouraged to complete and return the survey. The more feedback the City receives the more accurately our initiatives can be tailored to meet community needs.
The National Citizen Survey™ is sponsored by the International City/County Management Association in cooperation with the National Research Center, Inc. The questionnaire and survey procedure was 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.
