    1. Bowling Green Citizen Customer Satisfaction Survey Fall 2010 – National Citizen Survey

    2. National Citizen Survey • Collaborative effort between the National Research Center (NRC) & International City/County Management Association (ICMA) • The City of BG participates in ICMA’s Center for Performance Measurement • Survey focuses on community characteristics, local government services, and issues of public trust • Also measures resident behaviors relating to civic engagement

    3. Additional Information – Survey Process • City staff reviewed standard NCS form menu and customized • We included services not provided by the City as well (library, utilities, transit) • NRC mailed questionnaires to a representative sample of 1200 BG households (100 were undelivered) • Multi-contact notification was delivered via postcard and then survey sent twice on City letterhead/envelopes

    4. Additional Information – Survey Process • The adult with the most recent birthday was asked to complete the survey – this was done to get a representative sample • There was a 24% response rate (20 to 40% is typical) 263 of the 1200 surveys were completed and returned.

    5. Why Survey? • Immediate Benefits – Provides useful information for: • Planning • Resource Allocation • Performance Measurements • Program and Policy Evaluation

    6. Why Survey? • Long Term Benefits – Provides useful information for: • Improved Services • More Civic Engagement • Better Community Quality of Life • Stronger Public Trust

    7. Understanding the Results • The Survey Contains a Margin of Error of 5% • If 75% of respondents rate a service as “excellent or good” then the range of likely responses from the entire community is between 70% and 80% • Data is statistically weighted to reflect proper community demographics including rent/own

    8. Understanding the Results – Comparisons • Nationally, public safety services tend to be rated higher than transportation services • It is better to compare BG’s services to similar services provided by other jurisdictions rather than comparing one service to another within our City. • In order for a comparison from a previous survey to be “significant,” the +/- needs to be more then 8% • Overall, our comparisons in 2010 were better then 2008

    9. Understanding the Results – Benchmarking • A benchmark is a standard by which something can be measured or judged • NRC has a database of survey results from 500 jurisdictions that can be used as a benchmark • Bowling Green chose to compare to: • The entire database of 500 jurisdictions • And the southern region specifically - with 136 jurisdictions in 16 states

    10. Understanding the Results – Benchmarking • 77% of residents rated the overall quality of life in BG as excellent (E) or good (G) which is above or similar to the national and southern region benchmarks

    11. Understanding the Results – Benchmarking • 31 community characteristics and 37 City services were surveyed and compared to the benchmark data • For the 31 community characteristics surveyed, BG was rated “above” the benchmark in 16 categories; “similar” in 9 categories and “below” in 6 categories • For the 37 City services surveyed, BG was rated “above” the benchmark in 17 areas; “similar” in 17 areas and “below” in 3 areas

    12. Overall Community Quality - % rated as Excellent or Good • BG as a place to live – 81% • Your neighborhood as a place to live – 67% • BG as a place to raise children – 85% • BG as a place to work – 67% • BG as a place to retire – 69% • The overall quality of life in BG – 78%
