- The Matanuska-Susitna Borough Community Survey, 2009: A Sourcebook of Community Attitudes by Sharon Chamard and Khristy Parker
The survey asks Mat-Su Borough residents to evaluate the quality of Borough services, provide opinions about Borough decision-making, and sum up their perceptions about a range of issues relevant to the present and future of the Mat-Su community. The 2009 survey was distributed to 2,733 residents of the Mat-Su Borough; a total of 1,406 surveys were returned, for a response rate of 51.6%. The Sourcebook provides results in five major areas: (1) evaluation of current borough services; (2) use of borough facilities; (3) life in Mat-Su neighborhoods; (4) local government access, policies, and practices; and (5) respondent background information.
