This report summarizes the perceptions of Sharonville’s citizens, and studies differences in perceptions between groups of people. Survey questions have been grouped into topical areas, such as “General Public Sentiment” and “Views of City Services,” representing the chapters in this report. In each section, the results from the survey are described in detail, and statistical differences between groups of people are noted whenever applicable.
The survey instrument was designed by researchers at APRI (formerly CUPA) with the input and approval of the City of Sharonville. The questionnaire was developed from APRI’s experience in conducting surveys for local governments.
Data collection lasted from June 3rd to June 26th, 2014. Interviewers used a Computer Aided Telephone Interviewing (CATI) software program that displays the questionnaire on a computer screen and allows the interviewer to enter the response directly into the computer. Such a system helps to minimize errors in gathering the data. A total of 406 individuals were interviewed to obtain a 95 percent confidence level and a ±[4.7%] sampling error for the City as a whole.
