Dr. Chamard directs 2012 Mat-Su Community Survey

The 2012 Matanuska-Susitna Borough Community Survey will be directed by Dr. Sharon Chamard, Justice faculty.  She directed the Mat-Su Surveys for 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011. The 2012 survey will be mailed to a random sample of Mat-Su residents beginning in August.

The survey has been conducted annually since 2006 and is a cooperative research effort between the Justice Center and the Matanuska-Susitna Borough to collect information about use of and satisfaction with Borough services, opinions about Borough policies and taxation, and household composition. These data will be used by Borough decision-makers to prioritize projects, improve services, and better plan for the future growth of the Mat-Su Borough.

The 2011 report, "The Matanuska-Susitna Borough - Community Survey, 2011 and Trends 2007-2011: A Sourcebook of Community Attitudes," and additional past reports of the Mat-Su Surveys are available on our website.
