The Pittsburgh Regional Environment Survey
In May 2013, more than 800 men and women living in the seven-county Pittsburgh Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) were interviewed by telephone for a survey about the environment conducted by the University of Pittsburgh University Center for Social and Urban Research (UCSUR) and Pittsburgh Today. In order to better understand what’s important to our region’s residents about the environment—their behaviors and attitudes—we present the 2013 Pittsburgh Regional Environment Survey.

The following series of files (PDF format) present detailed question-by-question results of The Pittsburgh Regional Environment Survey for six key socio-demographic variables (age, education, gender, geography, income, and race).
The target geography for the survey was the seven-county Pittsburgh Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) that includes Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Washington, and Westmoreland counties. The survey was conducted by telephone using random digit dialing (RDD) sampling of both landline and cellular telephones in May and June 2013. A total of 805 surveys (476 landline, 329 cell) were completed. Details on survey methodology are provided in the appendix of The Pittsburgh Regional Environment Survey report.
