BUDA, TX – In December 2020, the City Council was given the results of the 2020 Resident Survey.
The City worked with Texas State University’s Center for Public Policy, Research, and Training to conduct the survey.
The survey, which included both a print and web option, was distributed to a sample of 2,000 randomly selected Buda residences.
A web survey was also made available for anyone wanting to provide input. The results of the open web survey were consistent with the results of the sample survey distributed to randomly selected households.
Based on the response rate, the survey statistics are scientifically valid, meaning that the results reflect an accuracy of 95% of household views with a margin of error of +/- 5%.
Surveying allows the City to hear feedback on the programs and services it offers and to gauge interest and support for new projects and initiatives. It provides valuable data to help the City improve services and budget based on the needs of the residents.
The city of Buda has provided the full survey below, along with an abbreviated version presented to City Council in December.
