The Matanuska-Susitna Borough Community Survey (Mat-Su Survey) is a cooperative effort on the part of the University of Alaska-Anchorage (UAA) and the Matanuska-Susitna Borough. Distributed to 2,478 residents of the Mat-Su Borough selected in a stratified random sample in the spring of 2007, the Mat-Su Survey asks residents to evaluate the quality of Borough services, provide opinions about Borough decision-making, and sum up their perceptions about a range of issues relevant to the present and future of the Mat-Su community.
This sourcebook presents the results of the Mat-Su Survey in a detailed tabular format with accompanying graphics. These findings will help the Borough prioritize projects, improve services, and better plan for community growth. Further, they will provide important information to UAA so that it may advance community research. Finally, they will serve as a useful reference for Mat-Su residents curious about how their neighbors view issues of local interest.
