For the past few years the City of Takoma Park has contracted with National Research Center, Inc. (NRC) to conduct a community-wide resident survey. These surveys provide residents the opportunity to rate the quality of life in the City, as well as the community’s amenities, service delivery and their satisfaction with local government. The survey also permits residents to provide feedback to government on what is working well and what is not, and to communicate their priorities for community planning and resource allocation.
The 2018 Takoma Park Resident Survey was mailed to 3,000 randomly selected Takoma Park households. Of the approximately 2,896 eligible households who received the survey (about 104 of the mailings were returned as undeliverable because the housing unit was vacant or the postal carrier was unable to deliver them as addressed) 826 completed and returned the mailed questionnaire or completed the survey online, giving a response rate of 29%. With 826 responses, the 95% confidence interval or “margin of error” is plus or minus three percentage points around any given percentage point.
