Survey Target Rationale In 2012 Community Connection set an annual survey target of 271. Each year, a sample size calculator ( is used to determine the annual target. This target was reached by applying the following determinates: - Population size: 1.2 million - A 5% margin of error - A 90% confidence level. Survey Participants To determine survey participants, calls are conducted in the normal way and at the end of some calls callers are asked to participate in a survey. If permission is granted, the caller’s first name and telephone number is collected. Community Connection's quality assurance team performs each follow up call three days after the initial call, using a set of questions that include both caller satisfaction and call outcome measures.

Third-Party Service Quality Evalution In addition to Community Connection's quality assurance program, a third-party research firm (contracted by Ontario 211 Services Corporation), conducted an additional 140 surveys with Community Connection's callers. The positive outcomes of these surveys contributed to Ontario 211 winning World Class Certification in 2012.
