2013 Survey Results

In this section, Respondents were asked to rate the quality of the existing service.
Then, they were asked to rate the importance of that service using the scale:

  • L = Low Importance (assigned a value of 1)
  • M = Medium Importance (assigned a value of 2)
  • H = High Importance (assigned a value of 3)

Because this is not a ranking exercise, multiple items can have the same importance rating.
