Community Assessment 2015 - Adult Survey Results

This report summarizes a nearly 2-year endeavor to collect and analyze data concerning the experiences and aspirations of adult residents of Monterey County. Researchers from California State University Monterey Bay’s (CSUMB) Institute for Community Collaborative Studies (ICCS) worked with Impact Monterey County’s (IMC) Data, Research & Analysis Team (DRAT) members to develop and then implement an Aspirations Survey of Monterey County residents as part of IMC’s Community Assessment of Monterey County.

The 86 question survey was designed to collect information about the concerns and aspirations of Monterey County residents in the areas of education, economic self-sufficiency, and health in order to understand the most effective ways to improve the quality of life in the county. A total of 4,220 valid surveys were collected from July 7, 2014 to October 31, 2014 using online and paper survey instruments which were available in both English and Spanish.
