Public Opinion Survey to Identify How Hudson Valley (NY) Residents Acquire Information About the Hudson River
The New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC), in cooperation with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s (NYSDEC) Hudson River Estuary Program, is inviting proposals to design, conduct, and analyze results of a public opinion survey of residents of the Hudson River Valley in New York State. The purposes of this project are to establish a baseline measure of public understanding of the Hudson River ecosystem; identify the media through which residents acquire information about the river; characterize their relative importance in disseminating such information to the public; determine, where possible, the sources of information (as distinct from the medium of its distribution); and investigate whether various segments of the public typically rely on different media for information. Design of the survey will require involvement of stakeholders including Hudson River Estuary Program and Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve staff. Project deliverables will be the set of questions used in the survey, the response data, and a report analyzing findings and any correlations revealed in that data. A maximum of $50,000 is being made available for this effort.
Proposals are due by 12:00 (noon – EDT) on November 15, 2017.
