ETC Institute administered a survey to residents of Durham County during the winter of 2018 and 2019. The purpose of the survey was to help Durham County strategically plan for the future as they continue to grow and meet new challenges. The City and County are jointly overseeing the survey so that more Durham residents have an opportunity to be heard. The survey will assist elected officials, as well as the City and County administrators, in making critical decisions about prioritizing resources and helping set the direction for the future of the community. Previous resident surveys were conducted in 2015, 2016, and 2017.
