​​​​​​​​​Citizen Survey

In July and August 2020, 2,700 randomly selected residents were asked to provide opinions on city services, amenities, and their quality of life in Ann Arbor via the National Citizen Survey, a collaborative effort between National Research Center, Inc. (NRC) and the International City/County Management Association (ICMA). This was a statistically valid survey that captured opinions of a representative sample of 548 residents of the City of Ann Arbor.
