Horry County Seeks Citizen Opinion

On September 8, 2017 in County News

Conway, South Carolina – Horry County Government is asking residents to participate in The National Citizen Survey™ (The NCS™). The survey is designed to provide a baseline of how Horry County is serving residents, to gauge perceptions of the county and to make comparisons with peer counties/cities.

The county contracted with National Research Center, Inc. to participate in The NCS™, an instrument that was developed in partnership with the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) in 2001 to provide counties/cities with a low-cost, high-quality method to conduct market research.

The survey centers on community livability and includes questions about the quality of life in the community, local policies, demographics, rating of local government services and resident use of services. A random and scientific sample of 3,000 households will receive invitations in the mail in early to mid-September 2017 and their confidential responses will be weighted and analyzed.

The results of this survey will be provided to Horry County Council in a future strategic planning session, hosted by The Riley Center for Livable Communities at the College of Charleston. The center is assisting Horry County with its strategic planning process.
