The City of Coon Rapids selected the National Research Center to conduct the City's 2016 Citizen Survey. The National Citizen survey is used as a tool to measure a community's quality of life including residents' thoughts and opinions on community characteristics, city services and community engagement. The survey is based on three pillars: Community Characteristics, Governance and Participation.
The survey was mailed to 1,500 randomly-selected Coon Rapids households in fall 2016. A total of 412 responses were collected (28% response rate, which is considered normal). The level of confidence for the resident sample is 95% with a 5% margin of error.
