The 2022 DuPage County Community Services Needs Assessment Report prepared by the Northern Illinois University Center for Governmental Studies Division of Outreach, Engagement and Regional Development, DeKalb IL is now available:
The DuPage County Department of Community Services commissioned the Northern Illinois University Center for Governmental Studies (CGS) to conduct the 2022 DuPage County Needs Assessment Study. The study is conducted every three years. The previous study was conducted in 2018. The findings are used to help understand the needs of residents and improve the quality of community services in DuPage County.
The 2022 DuPage County Needs Assessment Study includes an environmental scan, service user survey, community member survey, stakeholder survey, and focus groups. The study was conducted January 2021 through May 2022.
It should be noted that the study data is reflective of circumstances and views that were obtained during the COVID-19 pandemic. The community member survey did not reach the desired population and a revised methodology will be used for future needs assessments.
