A Note About Surveys

Surveys gather opinions, which are inherently based on each interviewed person's point of view. Unbiased opinions don't really exist. But by talking with enough people about their opinions, a consistent picture usually emerges to reveal the complexities and points of view of the targeted neighborhood. We may recommend interviewing additional neighbors for more clarity based on the initial survey results.
