New Tool to Survey Vermonters

Posted on Wednesday, December 15, 2010 by No comments yet

Many local government entities subscribe to Front Porch Forum’s pilot in northwest Vermont.  Hundreds of public officials are on board.

One municipality, a regional authority, used it this month to conduct a survey of the public and got about 300 people to complete their online questionnaire… about 1.5% of those who were asked.  To the question — What’s your preferred way to hear news from us? — nearly half answered Front Porch Forum… outpacing other options, such as the newspaper.  Of course, I’d expect a good response, given that they found these survey respondents through FPF.  Regardless, glad to hear the results.  And interested to see folks using FPF to survey Vermonters.
