As part of the City of Cedar Park’s continued commitment to customer service, Cedar Park residents were surveyed in the spring of 2019. It was the first time the City has conducted a resident survey. A randomly selected group of residents received a resident survey in the mail from the National Citizen Survey (NCS), administered by the National Research Center, Inc. (NRC).
Out of a scientific sample of 3,600 households, 440 households returned surveys. There is a five percent margin of error. Citizens gave especially positive feedback regarding various facets of community livability. Key findings show that safety, mobility and the economy are most important to residents. The surveys revealed that Cedar Park ranks 68th in quality of life in general when compared with hundreds of benchmark cities nationwide, and when it comes to being a good place to raise a child Cedar Park ranked 36th in the nation.
