Forterra is making sure this place we live stays a place we love. We do that by securing and caring for keystone lands — places vital to our region's long-run livability, sustainability and equity. Hearing from the voices of our region is vital, which is why we launched the Livability Survey for Puget Sound Millennials in the summer of 2016.
Second is a formal poll, conducted with help from EMC Research with financial support from Microsoft. Results of this poll will be progressively released on this site during the fall and winter — so check back often.

A Methodological Note:
The Livability Survey for Puget Sound Millennials was conducted by Forterra, a regional sustainability nonprofit, together with EMC Research, a pollster. The survey garnered input from 1,168 local millennials (300 interviewed by phone; 868 who filled out an online survey).
The phone millennials are a scientific sample. Based on the demographic data they supplied, we know that these millennials were mostly born in the local area; are more likely to be living with their parents (compared to their peers across the country); and/or are more likely to own a home.
The web millennials are a convenience sample, taking part on an opt-in basis. These millennials are mostly newcomers from another state, are more likely to be living with their significant others (compared to their peers across the country), and are also overwhelmingly more likely to be renters.
