2019 Community Needs Assessment

The data presented in this report are the culmination of a three-step process that began when Hendricks County Community Foundation staff interviewed key community, conducted seven focus groups and distributed a community-wide needs assessment survey with a goal of attaining demographic percentages reflecting the county’s population.

Based upon standard statistical measures, we achieved a 99 percent confidence level (with a 2 percent margin of error) for accuracy in reflecting the views of Hendricks County residents as a whole. In simple terms, the participants in this survey accurately represent the population of Hendricks County and its key demographic groups, so its findings can be projected across the actual population with a great deal of confidence. The methodology is consistent with the standards used by demographers, social scientists, and grantmaking organizations.
