The School of Public Service at Boise State University resumed a polling tradition in Idaho with the 2016 Idaho Public Policy Survey. The annual survey, conducted in January, asks a statistically significant sample of Idaho adults about public policy issues of interest to researchers, the media and the public.
Topics surveyed include education, the economy, general satisfaction, the environment, immigration and transportation.
“One of our goals at the School of Public Service is to offer tools for decision-makers through research, surveys and partnerships. We hope this annual survey will become a part of how state and local leaders evaluate the complicated issues they face.”Corey Cook, dean of the School of Public Service

Boise State conducted a prior public policy survey from 1990 through 2011, now archived at Boise State’s Albertsons Library. Because of changes in methodology and sample sizes, the new survey can’t be used in direct comparison with the university’s previous findings, however similar questions were asked in the past about key priorities and the direction of the state.
