Public Opinion Poll on Community Priorities: Sacramento
Sierra Health Foundation
The primary goal of this study was to measure public perceptions, opinions and priorities as they pertain to youth issues in Sacramento for the purposes of further developing public and private youth programming and public policy in the Sacramento region. By presenting a "statistically reliable" profile of public opinion on youth issues, the survey results and analyses presented in this report will provide Sierra Health with information that can be used to make sound, strategic decisions in a variety of areas, including program development and enhancements, community outreach, marketing, budgeting, policy-making, advocacy and planning. In brief, the survey was designed to: (1) Measure the importance that Sacramento voters assign to various local issues, as well as their perceptions of how well these issues are being addressed by government agencies and community groups; (2) Profile their support for two different frames for addressing youth from alternative approaches--one focusing on enforcement, the other focusing on youth development; (3) Identify the specific programs and services they would most favor funding; and (4) And evaluate how public debate about youth issues may shape the public's support for funding youth-related initiatives. (Contains 15 tables, 21 figures and 4 footnotes.) [This report was prepared by True North Research.]
