About the Survey

Minnesota State Survey

The Minnesota State Survey is an omnibus survey, which means organizations formulate and pay for questions that are of special interest to them. The questions from all participating organizations are combined into one larger mail and online survey, enabling everyone to share in the costs of the survey administration and collection of demographic information. Once the project concludes, organizations receive a report of the data.

The primary objective of the Minnesota State Survey is to obtain useful and technically sound information about the knowledge, attitudes, behaviors, and characteristics of Minnesota residents.

Each fall we conduct the survey across the state of Minnesota using techniques to ensure the people we are interviewing are representative of Minnesotans as a whole. In the fall of 2020 we will be conducting our 37th annual survey – contact us now to be a part of it!
