Quality of Life - Small town study

Epworth was selected at random in 1994 for a longitudinal study of small town quality of life and community attachment and relationships.  Surveys of residents were conducted in 1994, 2004, and 2014 to better understand the social climate, quality of life, and community attachment in small towns, and the changes that have occurred over the 20 year span.   

The attached report containing the research findings is based on information from the resident surveys, interviews with involved residents in 2015, and inventories of quality of life amenities conducted by researchers in 2015.
