Annual Survey

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Annual Survey is an affordable means of gauging public opinion on a wide range of community issues. By sharing the cost of survey research, agencies and organizations can obtain high quality, scientific information on topics of their choice. This collaborative approach allows survey sponsors to obtain customized information on attitudes, preferences, and interests for a fraction of the usual cost of an individual survey project.
