Okaloosa County, Fla., Oct. 5, 2022—Okaloosa County will be conducting a comprehensive quality-of-life community survey beginning this month and starting with residents in incorporated areas of the county.
The survey will include questions about quality of life, important characteristics of community, services provided by Okaloosa County and priorities for the future.
The survey will not ask for any personally identifiable information and all responses will remain anonymous.
In the days to come, randomly selected residents living in unincorporated areas will receive a postcard invitation to complete the survey online.
If the online survey is not completed, a reminder will be sent, along with a paper survey.
Soon after, the survey will be opened to all county residents.
“We are excited to be conducting this survey,” says Okaloosa County Board of County Commissioners Chairman Mel Ponder. “This survey will help Okaloosa County staff and board identify priorities for the community and improve the quality of life in Okaloosa County.”
The survey instrument, known as The National Community Survey™, allows the county to compare results and benchmark residents’ opinions against other communities across the country.
