A pair of researchers from Florida State University's Local Governance Research Lab has put out a call for respondents to a survey, with the goal of finding out how Tallahassee residents connect with government services.

Ryan Dailey recently spoke with University researchers Dr. Tian Tang and PhD candidate Corey Xu of the Askew School of Public Administration and Policy about the survey, and what they hope to accomplish through their research.

Questions, with timestamps:

0:00-1:54: I found it interesting that the stated purpose of the study is to understand respondents’ needs for various public services, and the way they interact with City government. Can you tell me more about that?

1:55-4:06: How many respondents are you hoping to hear from in this survey?

4:07-5:28: The survey also states its goal is to help governments improve their digital government tools. How does this research intend to do that?
