Comparison of Income in The Greater Boston Neighborhood Noise Survey Participants and Populations in Both Somerville, MA and Boston, MA

Given that over 50% of our survey participants reported incomes of over $100,000, when comparing these levels to median income levels in Somerville and Boston, we can readily see an over-representation of higher income participants.
CALL TO ACTION: While we took great efforts to make sure our survey was accessible to all (attending community meetings in under-served neighborhoods and reaching out to community activists), an even more targeted approach will be necessary for our next update.
Our goal is to create a comprehensive report card, which means that we need to hear from you. Please Click HERE to fill out our noise survey so that your response can be included in our next update.
