Survey of Detroit Area Residents — Toplines

Survey of Detroit Area Residents — Toplines

The Survey of Detroit Area Residents, the 18th in the Washington Post/Kaiser Family Foundation/Harvard University partnership series, was conducted by telephone from November 5 to 22, 2009 among 1,211 respondents age 18 and older living in the Detroit area (defined as Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties). Interviews were conducted in English and Spanish via landline telephone (N=784) and cell phone (N=427). Results are weighted to ensure the data are reflective of the demographics of the 3-county Detroit area. The margin of sampling error for results based on the total sample is plus or minus 3 percentage points. Representatives of The Washington Post, the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, and Harvard University worked together to develop the survey questionnaire and analyze the results. In advance of this project, the three partners conducted a series of interviews with Detroit-area leaders about current issues in Southeast Michigan and its future.
