At the center of the vision of the School of Public Service is to be a trusted resource for policymakers who are working to find effective solutions to public concerns. To help fulfill our vision of assisting decision-makers in making informed decisions, we conduct surveys across the city, state and region.
This month we released the Sixth Annual Public Policy Survey, which polled Idahoans from across the Gem State on the issues they care about most. This year’s edition also included questions about Idahoans’ experiences with, and attitudes about, the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this issue of Public Interest, we’ll share the results of our Public Policy Survey with you. We’ll also share an Idaho Public Television interview with School of Public Service Survey Director Jeffrey Lyons and a Blue Review interview about this year’s survey findings.
Recently, I’m sure you’ll agree, there has been no shortage of things for the public to be concerned about. We share your concerns, as well as your desire to make Idaho the best place it can be. It is our sincere hope that our surveys will be a trusted resource to decision-makers and thought leaders as we work in the public interest.
Thanks for reading,
