Why do you choose to live, work, and/or play on Nantucket?

To make good decisions, we need to better understand who we are as a community. NDP invites you to take 10 minutes to reflect and share your perspective.

What is the Island Life Survey?

The Island Life Survey was created by NDP’s team of data scientists and social scientists on behalf of ReMain Nantucket to explore the factors that draw people to the island, attributes that keep people on the island, and challenges that may ultimately cause people to leave.

The Island Life Survey is the second survey in NDP’s new Community Survey Panel initiative, a trusted avenue for sharing insights on important community topics in a safe, private, anonymous way.

Who is eligible to take the Island Life survey?

Anyone 18 years of age or older, who lives on the island for 6 weeks a year or longer, is eligible to participate. We encourage residents from ALL walks of life to complete the Island Life Survey in order to capture the full range of experiences and perspectives.

Why should I participate?

The Island Life Survey is an opportunity to reflect on the joys and challenges of island living. Your story matters. The aggregated survey results and analysis will provide insights into who we are as a community. We will share the final report with all respondents, as well as with ReMain Nantucket and other organizations to help them better serve the island.

You could also win a prize! Each person who completes the survey is eligible to win gift cards to local businesses. Each week, five survey respondents will each win $25 gift cards, and at the end of the survey, one lucky person will win a $250 gift card to a local business.

Do we need another survey? Don’t island organizations survey residents all the time?

Nantucket has a pressing need for local data and surveys are a convenient way to reach a wide array of stakeholders. We believe surveys are necessary to ensure that the needs of under-represented groups are brought to light. NDP’s surveys are unique for their rigorous methodological approach, ability to leverage supplementary data available to NDP, and accessibility in multiple languages.

Will you protect my data and privacy?

YES. Data privacy is a critical to NDP and we encourage you to read our Data Privacy Policy. NDP follows industry best-practices to ensure the confidentiality and privacy of your survey responses.
