These past few weeks, the Village of Lake Zurich has partnered with social scientists at the National Research Center for its fourth National Community Survey.
During August and September 2021, a statistically-valid representative sample of 777 residents participated in the the survey to provide accurate feedback on ten central facets of the Lake Zurich community; they rated everything from community design and mobility to public safety and the natural environment.
Highlights from this year include:
The National Community Survey was previously administered in Lake Zurich in 2015, 2017, and 2019, now again in 2021, creating reliable benchmark trends to keep in touch with changing community expectations.
The National Community Survey is sponsored by the International City/County Management Association in cooperation with the National Research Center, Inc.
The questionnaire and survey procedures are designed based on the experience of hundreds of local governments, ranging in size from small to large. As each city’s survey is developed using a standard template, and many cities can be surveyed at one time, the National Community Survey is a very effective way to measure resident opinion.
