Community Insight is now supporting the Best Places to Live Program being operated by a number of community newspapers.

The Community Insight Best Places to Live Program is a subscription-based service offered to community newspapers that consists of 5 surveys, each conducted annually on a 2-month schedule.

This is to ensure the surveys are conducted with the highest level of scientific rigor possible for these studies and that the results are reported in an unbiased and complete manner.
