Communication survey results are key to planning

Each year since 2014, Johnson County surveys residents on ways to improve the quality of county communication with the public. The survey, administered by ETC Institute in Olathe, is conducted by phone with a random sample of 408 county residents. The results for the random sample of 408 respondents have a 95 percent level of confidence with a precision of at least +/- 4.8 percent.
