Loudoun County, Va. (February 20, 2015) – Loudoun County residents report widespread satisfaction with county government services according to results of the 2014 Loudoun County Survey of Residents reported to the Board of Supervisors Wednesday.
Residents of Loudoun County continue to give very high marks to the county for its public safety, overall quality of life, value provided for the tax dollar, quality of county services, rural character, and proximity to amenities and jobs. The concerns most frequently expressed by residents relate to traffic and growth.
Loudoun County periodically conducts telephone surveys of residents to update demographic information, determine residents’ level of satisfaction with county services, and obtain residents’ opinions on key county issues in such areas as growth management, public safety, and taxes. Many questions remain the same over the years, with some changes in each survey reflecting topics of interest to the Board of Supervisors.
In 2014, questions were added to collect information about the types of devices used to connect to household Internet service; the availability, reliability and carrying capacity of cell phone service at home; opinions about the priority for county funding of improvements at Metrorail stations; and where Metrorail riders usually travel by Metrorail.
The 2014 Loudoun County Survey of Residents was carried out by the Center for Survey Research at the University of Virginia.
