University of Missouri Extension taking survey to better understand rural communities


A survey to hear from rural citizens, business owners, and leaders is being conducted to learn key issues, opportunities, and challenges in rural Missouri communities.

The Missouri Rural Development Partners launched its first Missouri Rural Survey to gain a better understanding of attitudes and opinions of rural community members.

The survey, which will be available until March 30, will also help to highlight strengths and identify weaknesses and results will be published later in the year and provided to local, state, and national leaders.

Anyone at least 18 years old can take the anonymous online survey HERE.

Paper copies can be requested by calling 573-882-8393.

The survey is done in partnership with the University of Missouri Extension and the Missouri Department of Economic Development’s Office of Rural Development.
