The City of West Hollywood periodically conducts a Community Study to help inform the funding priorities of the City’s Social Services Division. The 2019 study will update demographics; identify social services needs, use and satisfaction; and seek community input on housing, public safety, mobility, economic factors and City-resident communication. Past studies have included a survey, stakeholder interviews, focus groups, pop-up workshops and community meetings. This year’s process will be similar, with multiple opportunities for those who do not complete the statistically valid survey to participate and provide input. The study will present analysis and comparisons of a number of significant City populations The City’s last Community Study was completed in 2013.
