National Community Survey for Town of Frisco


The National Community Survey™ (The NCS), a collaborative effort between National Research Center, Inc. (NRC) and the International City/County Management Association (ICMA), was developed to provide communities an accurate, affordable and easy way to assess and interpret resident opinion about important local topics. Standardization of common questions and survey methods provide the rigor to assure valid results, and each community has enough flexibility to construct a customized version of The NCS.

As part of its participation in the survey, the Town of Frisco conducted a mailed survey of 1,700 residents. Surveys were mailed to randomly selected households in February 2020 and data were collected through April 2020. The results from this main survey effort represent the most robust estimate of your residents’ opinions.

After the above data collection period was underway, the Town made available a web-based survey to its residents through a link on the Town’s website. Visitors to the site were able to complete the survey during March and April 2020 and 114 surveys were received.

The survey and its administration are standardized to assure high quality research methods and directly comparable results across the NCS communities.
