To understand the underlying values and beliefs of the people in the region about quality of life and growth management principles, Metro commissioned extensive public opinion research in 2006 and 2009.

Six hundred voters in the Metro region were randomly selected and interviewed on the phone between July 31 and Aug. 3, 2009. The survey was designed to develop valid and statistically reliable information regarding the attitudes of residents about the quality of life in the region and growth management principles. The margin of error for the survey is +/- 4 percent.
