Community Surveys

The City of Redmond is interested in the thoughts and opinions of those who live, work and play here. 

Since 1998, Redmond has been working with an independent research organization to conduct an annual community survey. The survey results are one of the tools that provide invaluable help in shaping the budget to match the priorities of its community, and to track performance measures each year.

The 2023 survey was administered and analyzed by an independent research organization, EMC Research. The survey was conducted in English, Spanish, Chinese, and Hindi from January 16 – February 23, 2023, using a randomized address-based sampling (ABS) approach. Some of the key findings from the 2023 survey include:

  • Perceptions of Redmond’s quality of life are consistent and positive, and residents consider the City to be a welcoming, inclusive, and safe community.
  • Redmond residents continue to give the City high marks for the job it does on its core responsibilities, with some average but positive ratings on measures like using tax dollars responsibly and focusing on priorities that matter.
  • Ratings for most city services and functions have remained consistent with past surveys, with some exceptions.
