Surveys Prior to 2011
Boise State conducted a prior public policy survey from 1990 through 2011, now archived at Boise State’s Albertsons Library. Because of changes in methodology and sample sizes, the new survey can’t be used in direct comparison with the university’s previous findings, however similar questions were asked in the past about key priorities and the direction of the state.Surveys: 1990-2011
