How does the content in this interactive tool work?

  1. Click on the “Select a topic or question to map result” drop-down menu to view questions related to each survey topic. Some topics are further divided into sub-sections. To view questions in these sub-sections, click on the drop-down arrow of your preferred section.
  2. Detailed information: Hover over a specific neighborhood to get a quick summary for a particular question. This snapshot includes the number of people in that neighborhood who responded to the question, and the number and percentage of neighborhood respondents who answered with the text shown in quotations. This information will update based on what you choose to split the information by.
  3. Neighborhood summaries: If you are interested in looking at all of the survey questions for one specific neighborhood, you can click on the neighborhood in the interactive map. A list of the overall neighborhood responses (in the form of a percentage for the neighborhood) will populate in a pop-up window. Hovering over a specific question will display sample size numbers. If there was a low number of respondents to a particular question, the question will appear at the bottom of the list with the label “data suppressed.” These summaries do not update based on what you choose to split the information by. 
  4. Comparison to all VoiceGR respondents: To see how the responses in specific neighborhood compare to all VoiceGR respondents, click the text link in the upper right corner of the neighborhood summary. The questions will update to show neighborhood data as well as overall survey data.
  5. Split results by: Choose the participant characteristics (listed below the map) you’d like to view results for. The default view shows results for all characteristics by Grand Rapids neighborhood.
  6. Detailed information list: At the bottom of the page, the results display as a percentage for each neighborhood in a list based on geography. This information updates based on how you choose to split the information.
