Polling Residents on the Cleanliness of Their Cities
Kristin Musulin shares insight into a new YouGov poll about the satisfaction level of city residents with the cleanliness with their city.
According to Musulin, "of the 20 most populated metro areas in the U.S., Minneapolis-St. Paul and Dallas-Fort Worth both came out on top with 90% of residents that consider their respective cities "very clean" or 'somewhat clean.'"
Musulin ties the results of the YouGov poll to other measures of satisfaction among residents. So, for instance, according "to a recent ACES survey, people living near well-maintained areas like parks are 14% more likely to show satisfaction with local police and 13% more likely to report satisfaction with their mayor."
