Weber Shandwick Unveils Third Annual “State of Seattle” Survey

October 9, 2012

There are a lot of factors that shape Seattle’s story: our priorities, pain points and perceptions of each other as a community. Our city’s story is constantly evolving, and that’s why we conducted our  third annual “State of Seattle” survey (check out our surveys from 2010 and 2011). We polled 500 Seattle residents between September 10-14, 2012 to find out their perceptions of the city on a number of topics, including the economy, civility, culture and media.

So what is the state of Seattle? We’ll break the results down by topic in a short series right here on the Weber Shandwick Seattle blog. For now, you can check out the full survey results and official press release.
