What is a community to do to plan for its aging residents? Planning for increased numbers of older adults requires the wisdom to ask older adults themselves about their circumstances and needs.
Understanding the needs and opinions of local business is essential to effective budgeting, policymaking and planning for the future. Ensure that you get accurate answers by asking the right questions.
The nation's preferred citizen survey, The NCS™ stands as the gold standard in community assessments. Survey results provide a broad, accurate sum of community quality and resident viewpoints on local government services, policies and community livability.
