Chamber of Commerce “Index” survey

Earlier this month the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce published the second edition of its “Index” survey of registered voters in Seattle, covering a wide range of local issues including homelessness, public safety, the economy, and of course local politics.

I wrote a column for the South Seattle Emerald detailing some of the weaknesses of the survey, most notably the low number of people polled.

The chamber of Commerce also published the crosstabs for anyone who wants to dive into the details — with the caveat mentioned above that the low number of people surveyed makes statistics on subgroups particularly unreliable.
