Commuity Survey 2010

In March 2010, the Brandon Valley Area Chamber of Commerce and the City of Brandon, South Dakota contracted with USD’s Government Research Bureau to conduct a community assessment survey.

  • After a development period that involved city officials and the Government Research Bureau team, the survey was sent to 2500 households in Brandon.
  •  Of those surveys, 724 hard copies were returned. An additional 141 respondents that were sent a survey chose to complete the survey online. For a total of 865 responses and a response rate of 34.6%. This gives us a margin of error for the survey of 2.83%.1

This executive summary details the major findings from the survey and is separated into two major classes of findings: general trends and policy-specific recommendations.
