America is a diverse nation and our story is ever evolving. How we feel and what we value about the communities we live in is changing, too. The Urban Land Institute’s Infrastructure Initiative and Terwilliger Center for Housing set out to discover where America stands in 2013 when it comes to views on housing, transportation, and community.
In partnership with Belden Russonello Strategists LLC, a nationally recognized survey and communications firm, ULI conducted a statistically representative survey of 1,202 adults living in the United States.
The results of the survey provide an important benchmark on American attitudes and expectations around community choices. While the survey finds that the American people are overwhelmingly satisfied with their community’s quality of life, the survey also highlights the diversity of views Americans hold about where and how they live and what they want.
