2019 Seattle Resident Survey

Snapshot of Seattle City letterhead and invitation to participate in 2019 Resident Survey

Seattle is a vibrant, progressive city with many services and programs for our community members. One of the most critical jobs of City government is to focus on the basics, like public safety and transportation and water - the essentials that our communities, our neighborhoods, and our businesses rely on every day. The Resident Survey asks questions about City services including transportation, public safety, parks, and more. Answers from the survey will help us better understand how the City can serve you now and in the future.

The Seattle Resident Survey started July 3rd and closes July 28th. The following letter has been sent to at least 6,000 households in order to achieve a representative sample. Emails and phone calls are also being used to reach residents and / or follow up on letters that were sent. If you have received the letter shown here, we value your input and hope that you will respond. Didn't get a letter but still curious about the Seattle Resident Survey? Click here to see the letter

The survey is anonymous. 
To keep your responses completely anonymous and the results transparent, the City of Seattle has hired the Northwest Research Group, an independent research firm, to develop and host the survey.

Your responses to this survey are completely secure and confidential. All responses are combined with the responses of other residents, and your login number and any other identifying information will in no way be linked to the opinions you express.

Help and instructions
Contact information for technical support is on the right of this page. Instructions for how to access the survey are in the letter you received. For more information on the survey and methods, read the Frequently Asked Questions.
