Minneapolis Resident Survey calls will happen in October and November

This October and November, the City of Minneapolis is surveying its residents to get their perspectives about the quality of services the City provides. Approximately 1,100 residents will complete the telephone survey, which is being conducted by the National Research Center, Inc., an independent research firm. People contacted to complete the survey will be selected randomly, with the goal of reaching a diverse cross-section of Minneapolis residents.

If you are contacted to participate in the survey, please take a few minutes to provide your honest opinions about how we’re doing in Minneapolis. For most people, the survey will take about 20 minutes. The City of Minneapolis is eager to use the results to help create a Minneapolis with the best quality of life for everyone. Please pick up the phone and participate, because results from the survey are used by City departments as they plan for the future.

The survey will be translated for people who prefer to take it in Spanish, Hmong, Somali, Laotian, Oromo or Vietnamese.

The City has conducted similar surveys in 2001, 2003, 2005, 2008 and 2010; it’s part of Minneapolis’ ongoing effort to improve services and involve people in their local government. More information and past survey results are on the City's website.
