You're an expert on where you live

City-Life Survey 2022

Our editorial team wants to know what you think. Your experience about life in the city (or surrounding area) will inform stories in Edify’s print, digital and social platforms.

This survey asks questions about you, but more importantly, about how you live and move about. This one is different from Edify’s reader survey, so please do them both! We are offering several prizes for your participation: weekly draws for gift certificates and a grand prize of a smart & elegant bracelet, for those who complete both surveys. We appreciate hearing your opinion.

The information is for research purposes, and will only be used in combination with all other responses.

Any contact information you provide will be protected and only used for the purpose stated and with your explicit permission.

You will not be asked to buy anything today, or in the future, as result of taking this survey. It will take 8 or 9 minutes to complete.
