Dr. Chamard directs Winter 2013/2014 Mat-Su Community Survey

The Winter 2013/2014 Matanuska-Susitna Borough Community Survey will be directed by Dr. Sharon Chamard, Justice faculty.  She has directed the Mat-Su Surveys since 2008. The Winter 2013/2014  survey is in the process of being mailed to a random sample of Mat-Su residents.

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 the 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 Winter 2013/2014 survey will include a new set of questions developed by the Nature Conservancy and focus on the importance and use of salmon by the survey respondents.

The Matanuska-Susitna Community Survey 2012 and Trends 2008 - 2012 report, and additional past reports of the Mat-Su Surveys are available on our website.
