Madrid Selected for Iowa Small Town Poll

Madrid, Iowa, has been chosen as a participant in the Iowa Small Town Poll. In the past, this poll was administered every ten years, but distribution frequency has been increased to once every two years to better capture the ways rural life is changing.

250 Madrid households be invited to fill out the survey with 2016 topics ranging from population change, recession recovery, crime, to drinking water quality. The survey can be filled out online, and each participant is entered into a drawing for a $100 gift card (30 winners will be chosen). Paper surveys can be requested if needed.

David Peters, associate professor of sociology is coordinating this project at Iowa State. Learn more about the upcoming Iowa Small Town Poll here.
