The Results are in! Check Out Our 2020 Community Survey
In the our ongoing efforts to engage the public and be responsive to the community’s interests, we partnered with the independent firm True North Research to conduct a survey about our community’s opinions on a variety of topics. This statistically-reliable, comprehensive survey covers resident opinions about satisfaction with city services, quality of life, housing and building, recreation, and communication.
The survey was issued between January 27 and February 6, 2020 in English and Spanish, with over 1,200 residents participating via phone and online. The study employed a methodology that would provide statistically reliable results by surveying a random sample of residents who represent San Mateo’s demographics. San Mateo residents completed the survey at a much higher rate than initially anticipated, resulting in a statistical margin of error of just 2.7%.
We’re pleased to share True North Research’s comprehensive report on the results of our 2020 Community Opinion Survey!
The City Council will review and discuss the results with True North Research President Dr. Timothy McLarney during the May 18 City Council Study Session. You can watch online on our Public Meeting Portal and learn how to join the discussion.
