Boulder Community Survey

Note: The City of Boulder Open Data Catalog will be migrating to a new platform in fall 2020. A link to the new dataset location is included here under 'Data and Resources'. Please bookmark as the future site of Boulder Open Data.

This dataset contains survey results from the 2018 National Community Survey for Boulder. The survey contained a broad range of questions, including quality of life, priorities for city government, ratings of city services, communication and outreach, use of city facilities and programs, and demographics. Two versions of the survey results are included--the 'scientific' version which used a random sample of households and includes survey weights; and an online 'opt-in' version that was open to the general public.

See for more information, including methodology and summary documents.

This survey was administered by the National Research Center. The terms of use for data from this National Community Survey states that the data should not be used for commercial purposes. See 'Terms of Use' document and contact the National Research Center if more information is needed.
