This questionnaire was developed by the Graduate Community Survey Class in the Department of Rural Sociology at the University of Missouri, under the supervision of Dr. David O’Brien, Professor and Department Chair.  The purpose of the survey is to determine how Marceline citizens and those coming to Marceline as tourists, artists and other visitors feel about Marceline community arts, tourism and what would help increase the influence of local art and tourism on community economic development. There is no right or wrong answers to any of the questions and you may decide not to answer any or all of the questions.  Your responses will be kept entirely confidential.  Your name will not be associated with any responses.  Reports from this survey will only provide statistical summaries.
