About the Survey

The Northwoods Community Survey focuses on how members of rural communities in the north woods evaluate the assets, amenities, and services found in and around their community. The questionnaire also aims to understand quality of life and personal well-being of members of these communities. The ultimate goal of the survey questionnaire is to increase access to valuable information about the quality of life in rural northern communities of the north woods.


During the summer of 2019, the Center for Rural Communities mailed household survey questionnaires to randomly selected households in fifty-five rural communities across the north woods. We received 2,957 completed questionnaires. The survey results in this visualization are not been weighted.
