By identifying services of high importance and low satisfaction, the analysis identified which services will have the most impact on overall satisfaction with City services over the next two years. If the City wants to improve its overall satisfaction rating, the City should prioritize investments in services with the highest Importance Satisfaction (I-S) ratings.

This report contains benchmarking data from two sources: (1) an annual national survey that was administered by ETC Institute to a random sample of more than 2,000 residents in the continental United States and (2) surveys that have been administered by ETC Institute in 30 communities in the Kansas City metro area between January 2009 and December 2013.

City of Lee's Summit 2013 Citizen Survey: Final Report

Importance‐Satisfaction Analysis  City of Lee’s Summit 2013 Citizen Survey   

  Overview    Today, city officials have limited resources which need to be targeted to activities that are of  the most benefit to their citizens.  Two of the most important criteria for decision making are  (1) to target resources toward services of the highest importance to citizens; and (2) to target  resources toward those services where citizens are the least satisfied.    The  Importance‐Satisfaction  (IS)  rating  is  a  unique  tool  that  allows  public  officials  to  better  understand both of these highly important decision making criteria for each of the services they  are  providing.    The  Importance‐Satisfaction  rating  is  based  on  the  concept  that  cities  will  maximize overall citizen satisfaction by emphasizing improvements in those service categories  where the level of satisfaction is relatively low and the perceived importance of the service is  relatively high.     

Methodology The rating is calculated by summing the percentage of responses for items selected as the most  important  services  for  the  City  to  provide.    This  sum  is  then  multiplied  by  1  minus  the  percentage  of  respondents  that  indicated  they  were  positively  satisfied  with  the  City's  performance in the related area (the sum of the ratings of 4 and 5 on a 5‐point scale excluding  “don't know” responses).  “Don't know” responses are excluded from the calculation to ensure  that  the  satisfaction  ratings  among  service  categories  are  comparable.  [IS=Importance  x  (1‐ Satisfaction)].    Example of the Calculation.  Respondents were asked to identify the overall City services they  thought  were  most  important  for  the  City  to  emphasize  over  the  next  two  years.   Approximately sixty percent (59.5%) selected the “maintenance of streets, municipal buildings  and facilities” as one of the most important overall City services for the City to provide.

City of Lee's Summit 2013 Citizen Survey: Final Report

Interpreting the Ratings    Ratings  that  are  greater  than  or  equal  to  0.20  identify  areas  that  should  receive  significantly  more  emphasis  over  the  next  two  years.    Ratings  from  .10  to  .20  identify  service  areas  that  should receive increased emphasis.  Ratings less than .10 should continue to receive the current  level of emphasis.       Definitely Increase Emphasis (IS>=0.20)     Increase Current Emphasis (0.10<=IS<0.20)     Maintain Current Emphasis (IS<0.10)    The results for Lee’s Summit are provided on the following page.

 Importance‐Satisfaction Analysis  

With regard  to  satisfaction,  approximately  sixty‐seven  percent  (67.4%)  of  the  residents  surveyed rated their overall satisfaction with the “maintenance of streets, municipal buildings  and facilities” as a “4” or a “5” on a 5‐point scale (where “5” means “very satisfied”).  The I‐S  rating  for  the  “maintenance  of  streets,  municipal  buildings  and  facilities”  was  calculated  by  multiplying the sum of the most important percentages by 1 minus the sum of the satisfaction  percentages.  In this example, 59.5% was multiplied by 32.6% (1‐0.674). This calculation yielded  an I‐S rating of 0.1940, which ranked first out of fifteen Major City Services.    The maximum rating is 1.00 and would be achieved when 100% of the respondents select an  item as one of their most important choices and 0% indicate that they are positively satisfied  with the delivery of the service.    The  lowest  rating  is  0.00  and  could  be  achieved  under  either  one  of  the  following  two  situations:     if 100% of the respondents were positively satisfied with the delivery of the service     if none (0%) of the respondents selected the service as one of the most important  areas for the City to provide.

City of Lee's Summit 2013 Citizen Survey: Final Report

The Importance‐Satisfaction rating is based on the concept that public agencies will maximize  overall customer satisfaction by emphasizing improvements in those areas where the level of  satisfaction is relatively low and the perceived importance of the service is relatively high.  ETC  Institute  developed  an  Importance‐Satisfaction  Matrix  to  display  the  perceived  importance  of  major  services  that  were  assessed  on  the  survey  against  the  perceived  quality  of  service  delivery.  The two axes on the matrix represent Satisfaction (vertical) and relative Importance  (horizontal).     The I‐S (Importance‐Satisfaction) matrix should be interpreted as follows.      Continued  Emphasis  (above  average  importance  and  above  average  satisfaction).  This area shows where the City is meeting customer expectations.   Items  in  this  area  have  a  significant  impact  on  the  customer’s  overall  level  of  satisfaction.  The City should maintain (or slightly increase) emphasis on items in  this area.     Exceeding  Expectations  (below  average  importance  and  above  average  satisfaction).   This area shows where the City is performing significantly better  than customers expect the City to perform.  Items in this area do not significantly  affect the overall level of satisfaction that residents have with City services.  The  City should maintain (or slightly decrease) emphasis on items in this area.     Opportunities for Improvement (above average importance and below average  satisfaction).    This  area  shows  where  the  City  is  not  performing  as  well  as  residents  expect  the  City  to  perform.    This  area  has  a  significant  impact  on  customer  satisfaction,  and  the  City  should  DEFINITELY  increase  emphasis  on  items in this area.     Less  Important  (below  average  importance  and  below  average  satisfaction).   This  area  shows  where  the  City  is  not  performing  well  relative  to  the  City’s  performance in other areas; however, this area is generally considered to be less  important to residents. This area does not significantly affect overall satisfaction  with City services because the items are less important to residents.  The agency  should maintain current levels of emphasis on items in this area.    Matrices showing the results for Lee’s Summit are provided on the following pages.

City of Lee's Summit 2013 Citizen Survey: Final Report

Interpreting the Maps The maps on the following pages show the mean ratings for several questions by Census Block Group within Lee’s Summit, Missouri. If all areas on a map are the same color, then most residents in the City generally feel the same about that issue. When reading the maps, please use the following color scheme as a guide: • DARK/LIGHT BLUE shades generally indicate POSITIVE ratings. Shades of blue generally indicate higher levels of satisfaction, higher likelihood, higher safety ratings, higher agreement ratings or higher levels of support for the issue in question. For Question 25, shades of blue indicate higher “much too slow” or “too slow” ratings. • OFF-WHITE shades indicate NEUTRAL ratings. Shades of off-white generally indicate that residents thought the quality of service delivery is adequate or that residents were neutral about the issue in question. For Question 25, shades of tan indicate higher “just right” ratings. • ORANGE/RED shades indicate NEGATIVE ratings. Shades of orange/red generally indicate higher levels dissatisfaction, lower levels of likelihood, lower safety ratings, lower agreement ratings and/or lower levels of support for the item in question. For Question 25, shades of red indicate higher “much too fast” or “too fast” ratings.
