922 residents responded to the mail survey. The survey asked people to describe their demographic information. To be considered representative of our residents, a total of 750 responses were needed. It was great that our residents responded well above the minimum needed. The demographic information which people provided was compared to the U.S. Census information to make certain the residents answering the survey were similar to the Norfolk population as identified in the 2020 Census.
313 responses were received in the second phase of the survey responses. Since this part of the survey could be completed by any resident, it does not reflect all the Norfolk population. While not representative, these responses were important to capture the priorities and opinions of any resident who wished to be included in the responses.
