Description: Public Engagement and Comprehensive studies are fundamental to creating a vision and new direction for communities. Data collection and analysis are dependent on the type of tools that planners must have to form policy and gauge public opinion. Yet, courses for City Planning degrees often only mention the art of survey design in passing rather than presenting an in-depth view of the skill set needed for this type of data collection. After discussing some fundamentals of good survey design and administration, we will engage participants in a hands-on activity. Participants will draft workshop survey questions for use in their own communities, as well as, consider how they will analyze the data they get from respondents.
