The City of West Des Moines conducted its eighth DirectionFinder Survey in the Summer of 2018. This survey, developed and administered by ETC Institute, a leader in market research for local governments, assesses citizen satisfaction with the delivery of major City services. The results help determine priorities for the community as part of the City’s ongoing planning process.
The survey has been conducted approximately every other year since 2002, each time with a random sample of approximately 400 to 560+ respondents. The results have a 95% confidence level with a margin of error of +/- 4.1 percent.
