NCS Citizen Survey Report
In January 2018 the City of Cedar Rapids asked a sample of residents to participate in The National Citizen Survey™ (The NCS™). The survey was designed to provide information about how the city government is serving residents, to gauge perceptions of the City, and to make comparisons with peer cities. The survey centers on community livability and includes questions about the quality of life in the community, local policies, demographics, rating of local government services and resident use of services.
