Bettendorf's Citizen Survey

The City of Bettendorf is partnering with National Research Center, Inc. to conduct the National Citizen Survey. The survey centers on community livability and includes questions about the quality of life in the community, local policies, demographics, rating of local government services, and residents’ use of services. The NCS is designed to provide a baseline of how the City of Bettendorf is serving residents, to better gauge perceptions of the City, and to make comparisons with peer local government agencies.

Recently, a random and scientific sample of 1,500 households received the survey by mail. Bettendorf residents not randomly selected to participate in this year's city survey can still have their opinions heard. An opt-in version of the City of Bettendorf’s Citizens Survey is now available online.

The results from the online opt-in survey will be weighted and analyzed separate from the random and scientific sample. Those residents who received one of the original mail surveys are encouraged to complete those instead of the opt-in survey.

The deadline to participate in the opt-in version is July 10, 2018.
