Responsible Government

In 2001 and 2004, the City of Tucson participated in the National Citizen Survey. 3,000 residents were asked a set of questions about life in the city, and several of those questions focused on the performance of city government, where a score of 100 was the highest possible. There was relatively little change in resident perceptions, except with regard to the “overall direction the City is taking.”We would also like to explore the apparent conflict between perceptions of access and perceptions of actual influence on government decisions.

At the moment, we can only imagine what the current scores would be, but we hope to have data before long.
