Data is important to understanding a community’s need as well as its potential, and that is precisely why the Downtown Long Beach Associates (DLBA) publishes its Economic Profile annually.

In order to not only have more data but more detailed data, we’ve partnered with the Cal State Long Beach (CSULB) Office of Economic Research so that we can reach out to residents and find out who they are and what their perception of DTLB is via a survey. While no personal identifiers will be used, this survey will help us learn about opinion on entertainment, restaurants, and retail amenities along with information about shopping practices and desires.

Essentially, it’s about hearing your voice and learning from the people who call DTLB their home. And the survey will take all but 20 minutes to complete.

To thank you for your support in this endeavor, we’ll be automatically entering you to possibly score VIP tickets for the Friday portion of this year’s three-day Grand Prix event or Taste of Downtown tickets.

Residents are asked to email the Office of Economic Research at CSULB (OER@csulb.edu) so CSULB can provide the survey link for you to participate.

Note: ALL INFORMATION COLLECTED WILL REMAIN CONFIDENTIAL. RESULTS WILL BE REPORTED ONLY IN AGGREGATE FORM SO THAT NO INDIVIDUAL RESPONDENT WILL BE ABLE TO BE IDENTIFIED.
