These data reflect results of a household survey implemented in the summer of 2014. The survey randomly sampled households from 23 neighborhoods (census block groups) across 12 cities and 3 counties. Neighborhoods were purposively selected to represent different configurations of social, built, and natural environmental characteristics using the "iUTAH Urban Typology" (https://www.hydroshare.org/resource/84f00a1d8ae641a8af2d994a74f4ccfb/). Data were collected using a drop-off/pick-up methodology, and produced an overall response rate of over 62% (~2,400 respondents). The questionnaire included detailed questions related to household water use and landscaping behaviors, perceptions of water supply and quality, participation in water based recreation, concerns about water issues, and preferences for a range of local and state water policies.
Here we are making public an anonymized version of the large household survey dataset. To protect the identity of respondents, we have removed a few variables and truncated other variables.
