The Pittsburgh Today Regional Education Survey
The Pittsburgh Today Regional Education Survey is the most comprehensive survey to date to ask Allegheny County residents about their experiences and perspectives regarding education and the local public schools that educate 115,000 students in grades kindergarten through 12.
The online survey was conducted by Pittsburgh Today and the University Center for Social and Urban Research at the University of Pittsburgh (UCSUR) in October 2019. Nearly 2,300 Allegheny County residents identified from the UCSUR Research Registry participated. Survey data were adjusted to make the sample representative of the demographic characteristics of the county.
The responses reveal the broad perspectives of country residents as a whole, as well as how race, age, level of education, gender, income and whether people live in the City of Pittsburgh or the suburbs tend to color views and experiences related to local public schools.
The findings are contained in seven data sets, which allow for comparing responses across age, gender, income, race, level of education, and among people in City of Pittsburgh and those who live in the county suburbs.
