The residents of Lafayette parish are encouraged to take part in a “Quality of Life” survey from mid-October.
One Acadiana commissioned the survey from a nationally recognized independent polling company, Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy. Residents who want to “help improve the quality of life in the community” are invited to participate in the 15-minute call, which will be made on both landlines and cell phones across the community.
The survey starts in mid-October and asks residents about key factors that affect quality of life, including economic conditions, job security, educational opportunities, cultural opportunities and safety.
“This is a unique opportunity for the residents of Lafayette Parish to share their perspective on the place they call home,” said Troy Wayman, President and CEO of One Acadiana. “This basic survey will collect objective data that will provide information about the strengths and opportunities for improvement of the community. The same survey is then conducted annually so that we can see how we improve over time. “
The polling company aims to reach 625 residents of Lafayette Parish, which will produce results with a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percent. Geography wider than the parish would have increased the margin of error for this survey too much, One Acadiana said, but the organization plans to work with leaders in other parishes who may be interested in a similar survey in their community.
An event will be held in Downtown Lafayette on December 15 to present the survey results to the public.
