2005 Resident Satisfaction Survey

The City of Minneapolis contracted with National Research Center, Inc. to conduct a community wide resident survey. The survey provided residents the opportunity to rate the quality of life in the City, as well as service delivery and their satisfaction with local government. This is the third iteration of the Minneapolis Resident Survey since the baseline study conducted in 2001.
