In 2020, the City began participating in the National Community Survey (NCS). The survey gauges residents' opinions of a representative sample of Moorpark households on the economy, mobility, community design, utilities, safety, the natural environment, parks and recreation, health and wellness, education/arts/culture, and inclusivity and engagement. The survey then compares the responses of Moorpark residents to residents of other cities of a similar size across the country. This information is helpful to City officials as they set policy goals, implement programs, and prioritize how to use City resources to best improve the quality of life in Moorpark.
2020 National Community Survey Results
In November 2020, polling specialists sent surveys to 2,700 Moorpark households, with 500 (19%) of them completing surveys. These responses were weighted to reflect the demographic profile of the community to ensure that the survey results reflect a representative sample of Moorpark. Ultimately, this methodology translates to a margin of error of plus-or-minus 4% for the survey results. While highlights of the survey results are shown below, you can view the full results here:
