From Wednesday, May 9 to Sunday, May 20, 2018
SAINT-LAZARE (Quebec), Wednesday, May 9, 2018 – Between Wednesday, May 9 and Sunday, May 20, 2018, Saint-Lazare residents can expect to receive a call from the firm of Léger Marketing as part of a survey on the municipal issues that divided electors during the 2017 municipal election.
In order to obtain significant results among our population of 20,000 inhabitants, Léger Marketing will survey 400 randomly chosen residents 18 years of age or older within the territory of Saint-Lazare. The size of the sample will enable us to identify a trend with a margin of error of ±4%. Outside of this sample, the trend and margin of error vary only slightly (0.07% less with a sample of 600 persons, for comparison). Note that samples of 1,000 respondents are generally used for Quebec overall (population of 8 million) and 1,500 for Canada (population of 36 million).
This survey, which takes approximately 7 minutes to complete, will take into consideration the usual sociodemographic variables and will be weighted in order to provide a picture that is representative of our residents.
Recall that, upon adopting its first budget on January 30, 2018, the new municipal council had committed to surveying the town’s citizens in an effort to identify their perceptions of these issues and how they rank them in terms of priority. The results of this study will enable elected officials to better understand the needs and expectations of its citizens.
