Project Timeline

Key Highlights


The initial postcards inviting households to take the survey will be mailed out via USPS beginning on January 28, 2019. Fieldwork will encompass the online, paper and phone versions of the survey as well as focus groups and key informant interviews conducted throughout the five-county region.

Data Analysis

All of the information gathered from the surveys, focus groups and key informant interviews will be synthesized and analyzed by Westat to create a portrait of the Greater Philadelphia community. In addition to population estimates across the region, the data will provide information about trends and behaviors across the community.


Once data analysis is complete, the final report and supplemental reports on special populations and geographies will be published and made available to the public. Reported results will be crucial for organizations throughout the region to help develop strategy and provide services.
