Community Survey

Every two years, the City of Manhattan conducts a community survey from a sample of households to seek feedback regarding satisfaction of services and support for future projects. In 2019, the City conducted its third community survey from March 18 through April 22. The survey was emailed to 5,348 households across the city, and 1,000 postcards were mailed to random sample of addresses, both including the survey link and unique password. The 2019 community survey received a 22% response rate. View the interactive 2019 Community Survey Report below.
