Growth in the Treasure Valley in 2020
The Treasure Valley has experienced robust population growth in recent years, and by all accounts those trends only increased in 2020. Using survey responses from a geographically and demographically representative sample of 750 Treasure Valley residents, we explore their views on growth and some of the issues that it presents.
Idaho Public Policy Survey
The Sixth Annual Idaho Public Policy Survey was conducted November 29th–December 3rd, 2020, and surveyed 1,000 adults over the age of 18 who currently live in Idaho. The sample is designed to be representative of the population of the state both geographically and demographically. This was a mixed-mode survey which contacted by phone (58%), online (32%), and via text message (10%). The goal of using multiple means to contact respondents is to increase our coverage of the population to people who may not respond to traditional phone surveys. The survey addresses a variety of issues facing Idaho including growth, education, taxes, and criminal justice, but this brief will focus on attitudes regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. The survey has a simple random sampling margin of error of +/- 3.1% and was conducted by GS Strategy Group.
