"Please see above the data set encompassing the results of the Hamilton Civic League's 2010 Values & Priorities survey. This data set is the product of many hours of work by dozens of volunteers who generously gave of their time to solicit responses from residents across the City.
The Civic League aspired to make this survey as representative as possible. We adhered to the following collection methods:
Each of the 15 city wards were divided into 14 territories and volunteers received maps of their assigned areas with a target number of households to reach. We requested that volunteers do their best to collect responses from a representative mix of respondents in their area - that is, spread proportionally throughout the geographic area, among different types of dwellings (eg. detached houses, multi-unit residential & apartment buildings) and other identifiable clusters (eg. social or cultural groupings). Every survey was administered in person at the respondent's door while the volunteer waited, or dropped off and collected a short time later. The vast majority of surveys were completed by the respondent themselves and then handed over, though in some cases questions were verbally posed and recorded by the volunteer as circumstances required. Volunteers were forbidden from suggesting answers or providing any direction to the respondent which could influence their answers. They were permitted to provide clarification on terms and language if necessary.
While we strove to collect an equal number of responses from each ward and sub-territory across the city, time and personnel constraints determined that we were not able to administer the survey in every area of the city. Though proud of the scope of work that has been completed, we recognize that for some people this may limit the relevance of the data. We assert, however, that within the context of statistical limitations this data does provide an honest and accurate reflection of Hamiltonians' views on the issues posed. We hope that it is used widely and productively to provoke, inform and shape discussions of the important issues affecting our city"
