Carbondale Gun Violence Community Survey

Carbondale Gun Violence Community Survey

The City of Carbondale wants to improve safety and has asked SIUC to conduct research to understand the nature of gun violence happening in the city and to study the drivers or conditions that facilitate the gun violence. Residents’ knowledge of and experience with gun violence is an important part of that understanding. So, we are asking all adult residents in Carbondale to please take a brief online survey to share your experiences and opinions. 

Keep in mind, internet access is available at the Carbondale Public Library or you can complete the survey on your cell phone, tablet, or computer! This survey will take approximately 8-10 minutes to complete. 

COMPLETE SURVEY HERE

The survey is being independently conducted by Southern Illinois University at the request of the Carbondale City Council. Your responses are anonymous. We will not collect your name or address, and only summary statistics will be included in a report to the council.

Participation is voluntary, but we hope that you will help and take the opportunity to share your opinion and experiences. You may refuse to answer any question or discontinue the survey at any time without penalty. 

If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact Dr. Tammy Kochel, Associate Dean in the College of Health and Human Sciences, at tkochel@siu.edu or (618) 453-6371—please leave a voice mail and someone will call you back. 

Thank you so much for taking a few moments to help us understand your opinions and concerns in an effort to make Carbondale a better place to live.
