Statewide Needs Assessment
UArizona Cooperative Extension conducted a statewide needs assessment survey in Fall 2022 to better understand the communities we serve. The Statewide Needs Assessment Survey Report and Arizona Secondary Data Profile include results and in-depth demographics comparing survey respondents with the general population of Arizona.
Specific information about your county is also available.
- County one-pagers summarize priority needs identified by respondents in each county. These reports are currently being translated into Spanish.
- County reports go more in-depth with additional results in each topical area and demographics.
- County secondary data profiles are a collection of data from publicly available sources describing the population, economics, health, education, agriculture, and natural environment in each county. These will be useful for contextualizing the survey results as well as for grant-writing and strategic planning.
The current survey process was designed to identify needs and priorities at the state level and county level. Collecting data that meaningfully informs Extension's partnership with Arizona tribes will require a tribal-specific needs assessment that honors the data sovereignty of individual tribal nations. Tribal community members were not excluded from participation in this survey, however, and are included as state and county residents.
