In the Spring of 2021, Hillsborough County residents had the opportunity to weigh in on key quality-of-life areas. The 2021 Hillsborough County Citizen Survey reassessed satisfaction in five strategic focus areas that impact resident's lives, such as high-quality community assets, life enrichment and recreational opportunities, the local economy, public safety, and self-sufficiency programs for individuals and families.
Feedback from the anonymous phone and online surveys will help County administration to understand the community's current priorities and satisfaction levels.
A total of 1,400 statistically valid responses were collected during the telephonic survey period and an additional 15,027 responses were collected as part of the alternative online questionnaire.
