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.
About the program
Now accepting questions for the next survey
The UNC Charlotte Urban Institute has opportunities for sponsorship of survey questions, now available on a first-come first-serve basis. For more than 30 years, the institute’s survey of Mecklenburg County residents has become an important resource to allow local governments and nonprofit agencies to discern community attitudes about issues important to their work.
If you have questions about the institute’s survey services, contact Claire Apaliski.
