Methodology for the VoicesDMV Survey

December 7, 2017


Voices of the Community: DC, Maryland, Virginia (VoicesDMV), is a community engagement initiative from the Greater Washington Community Foundation, in partnership with the Urban Institute, designed to lift up residents’ stories and perceptions of the quality of life in the Greater Washington region. More than 3,000 respondents in Prince George’s County, Northern Virginia, Montgomery County, and Washington, DC were surveyed as part of the initiative. The survey results provide a collection of rich, local data that can inform civic engagement, community-driven development, policy considerations, and effective grantmaking in our region. This brief discusses the methodology for the 2017 VoicesDMV survey.
