Town of Erie 2015 Citizen Survey
Results Now Available!
90% Rate Erie as an Excellent or Good Place to Live and 4 in 5 Residents Rate Their Overall Quality of Life as Excellent or Good!

The results of the 2015 Town of Erie Community Survey were presented to the Board of Trustees during their July 28, 2015 meeting.  This scientific, statistically valid survey was conducted to provide residents an opportunity to rate their satisfaction with the quality of life in the Town, the community’s amenities and satisfaction with local government. 

The survey was administered by the National Research Center (NRC) and mailed to 3,000 randomly selected households within the Town.  According to Damema Mann, Senior Survey Associate for NRC, a total of 1,191 completed surveys were obtained, giving a high response rate of 41%.  The margin of error for this survey is no greater than plus or minus three percentage points around any given percent reported for the entire sample.  With this margin of error, you may conclude that when 60% of survey respondents report that a particular service is “excellent” or “good,” somewhere between 57%-63% of all Erie residents are likely to feel that way.
