BOISE — Every year, Boise State conducts a statewide survey with a series of policy questions to give decision-makers more information. This year they surveyed 1,004 adults over the age of 18. The survey is designed to be representative of the population of Idaho.

People were contacted by landline, cell phones, online, and via text message. More than 60% of respondents said education is fair or poor.

According to the survey, more than 50% of the respondents said Idaho is growing too fast.

Another topic is the political affiliation of people to moving into Idaho.

"One of the more interesting findings that we found was that people moving to Idaho look a lot like people who are already in Idaho, so we surveyed people and took the people who have been here the last 10 years, and they look at least from a partisan perspective almost identical to the people who have been here for more than 10 years," said Gregory Hill, Director of the Idaho Policy Institute.

The results are made available to legislators. To see the full results head here, Idaho Public Policy Survey
