Tooele City residents invited to take online “wellbeing” survey

Tooele residents are invited to participate in a survey to let local government officials know their opinions on a variety of community issues including their own wellbeing, according to Utah State University Sociologist Courtney Flint, who oversees the Utah Wellbeing Survey Project. 

A total of 252 Tooele residents completed the Utah Wellbeing Survey last year and are invited to respond again this year. All residents are urged to complete the survey during February and March online at tinyurl.com/yd82kdxw.

Results of the survey will be made available in the summer.

“The 2021 survey will give us a chance to see how wellbeing is changing in Tooele, in part due to the COVID-19 pandemic and related challenges. In these times of rapid change, keeping our finger on the pulse of quality of life or wellbeing of Utahns is important,” Flint said.

The Utah Wellbeing Project began on a limited basis in 2019 and canvassed the state in greater detail in early 2020, according to information published in Utah State Magazine. 

“The pandemic will obviously have big-time economic impacts on individuals, families and certainly localities in the state, so there are going to be a lot of decisions to be made about tweaking expenditures,” Flint said.

The project is designed to assess the wellbeing and perspectives of city residents to provide information to government leaders in their general planning processes, she said.

For more information about the project or if you would like your city to be included in 2021 survey efforts, please contact: Dr. Courtney Flint – courtney.flint@usu.edu or (435) 797-8635.
