Community Assessment Survey

Every two years since 2008, the City of Burien has conducted a survey to assess residents’ perceptions about the general quality of life in the City and their satisfaction with City government services. The survey is a longitudinal study that enables us to compare the results over time.

2022 Community Assessment Survey

The City did not conduct a community assessment survey in 2020 because of expenditure reductions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. A survey will be conducted in 2022. EMC Research was selected through a request for proposals process to implement the 2022 survey.

2018 Community Assessment Survey

According to the 2018 survey, residents feel the most important issues facing Burien in the next five years are public safety, affordable housing, and homelessness.
