In early 2019, we partnered with Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania to conduct a survey of Upper Merion Township residents to help us better understand their experiences with township facilities and services. Households and residents were randomly selected to participate in the survey and notified by mail or phone in early-July. Residents who were not randomly selected to participate in the initial survey were still able to provide feedback by completing an online version.
Franklin & Marshall College’s Center for Opinion Research is widely recognized as one of the nation’s foremost survey research organizations. Their expertise covers a wide range of areas, including public policy, healthcare, education, and politics. The Center for Opinion Research uses The United States Postal Delivery Service’s Delivery Sequence File to randomly select household’s within a targeted geographic area, and then matches them with information in consumer databases to attempt to find a phone number associated with each address. The Center for Opinion Research does not have any other information about your household other than your address and possibly your phone number. This information will not be shared or sold to ANY other organizations. More information about The Center for Opinion Research can be found here: fandm.edu/opinionresearch
