What Kansas City Residents Like Most And Least About Their City

The yearly survey found a shift in the priorities of Kansas Citians, and how they view the city on a number of issues.

The numbers may not be statistically significant, but a trend was clear in the most recent resident satisfaction survey that was conducted for Kansas City, Missouri.

Answering questions in more than a dozen categories, there was a slight downtick in how respondents rate Kansas City as a place to live and raise children. Conversely, the services that residents receive for their tax dollars are being viewed more favorably. We got a rundown of the more significant findings from the 2020-2021 Resident Satisfaction Survey.
