This dataset contains survey results from the 2018 National Community Survey for Boulder. The survey contained a broad range of questions, including quality of life, priorities for city government, ratings of city services, communication and outreach, use of city facilities and programs, and demographics. Two versions of the survey results are included--the 'scientific' version which used a random sample of households and includes survey weights; and an online 'opt-in' version that was open to the general public.

See https://bouldercolorado.gov/city-manager/community-survey for more information, including methodology and summary documents.

This survey was administered by the National Research Center. The terms of use for data from this National Community Survey states that the data should not be used for commercial purposes. See 'Terms of Use' document and contact the National Research Center if more information is needed.
