Sangamon County Citizen Survey

In June 2013, the SRO released the results from the first Sangamon County Citizen Survey, the first formal survey of its kind measuring local quality of life in Sangamon County. The survey was a joint project between the University of Illinois Springfield Center for State Policy & Leadership, the Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln, and the United Way of Central Illinois. It measured nine different indicators, including culture and recreation, health, economy, education, government and civic participation, environment, public safety, infrastructure, and social well-being.
