FINAL: 30,000+ participations (includes 2,100 from Baseline & Scientific Surveys)


Respondent driven: each participant got to pick the order (and number) of modules completed

Computer driven: each respondent was randomly assigned a pathway, wit a random and representative half completing: o The Future Scenarios module (the longest) o The three task force modules—jobs/economy, culture/amenities, education (all three together equal the length of Future Scenarios)

• • •

Voluntary – anyone who heard about the project or who was interested in it could come to the platform and share their opinion iPad Outreach – volunteers targeted specific demographic groups and neighborhoods on foot

No quotas or weighting

o Invitations were sent to demographically representative sets of San Diego residents as identified in online research panels

Repeat visits – a respondent could come back to the platform to share their voice on an additional module o A respondent could technically come back and share their voice repeatedly on the same module, there were not cookies or IP address tracking mechanisms

Random Invitation - respondents were only able to participate via invitation

Quotas—based on 2010 US Census data for San Diego County—were set to ensure adequate representation of key demographics (gender, age, ethnicity, education) Data was weighted for an exact match to 2010 US Census results for San Diego County on age within gender, ethnicity, and education One complete per person – respondents had to complete their entire computer generate path to count as a complete o Each email invitation link was eligible for use by just one individual/IP address
