If you recently received a phone call, email, or letter from us, then we would like you to participate in one of our surveys or focus groups. We collect data for use by policy makers, health researchers, government organizations, businesses, community groups, and others who want to know what the public thinks about a variety of important issues. We are dedicated to helping these organizations identify, understand, and meet the needs of Pennsylvania's residents. By finding out what you and others think, they can make well-informed decisions based on the most current information available. This is your opportunity to make your voice heard.
During the last two years, we have asked citizens to tell us their opinions about many issues, including:
• The quality of their local public schools
• Ways to reduce crime and improve the quality of life in their neighborhoods
• How to improve their local hospitals and healthcare facilities
• How local municipalities can generate more revenue to provide the services community members need
