About the Hoosier Life Survey

Conducted between August and December 2019, the Hoosier Life Survey captures how Indiana residents perceive environmental changes, how residents are being affected in their homes and communities, how Hoosiers are preparing, and what they expect in the future.

The survey was sent to 10,000 Hoosiers across eight pre-defined regions in the state to ensure adequate geographic coverage. The margin of error for the survey report fell within plus or minus 1.9 percentage points, with a confidence level of 95 percent.
