Brandman University is pleased to present its 2010 State of Orange County Survey. Brandman University, formerly Chapman University College, is part of the Chapman University System.
The Brandman University 2010 State of Orange County Survey includes many questions previously asked in the University of California, Irvine 2000 Orange County Annual Survey. That survey, as well as the 18 annual surveys which preceded it, was conducted by UCI Professor Mark Baldassare and Cheryl Katz. By comparing the responses from the 2000 survey to those in 2010, we can see how public opinion in Orange County has changed during one of the most turbulent decades in the County's history. The 2010 survey also includes questions on energy and the environment -- some of the most vital challenges and economic opportunities facing us today. We hope the data will allow Orange County to know itself better, and will inspire thoughtful discussion and debate.
