Summary of Key Findings from Pennsylvania Statewide Public Opinion Survey (2015)

In 2015, the Center for Survey Research at Penn State Harrisburg completed a statewide survey of 601 Pennsylvanians to assess public support for increasing state funds to conserve and protect open space, clean water, natural areas, wildlife habitats, parks, historic sties, forests, and farms. The survey results showed overwhelming public support throughout the state and among all demographic groups for both continuing existing dedicated state funding for conservation as well as increasing state funding for land and water conservation, even if that meant a small increase in taxes.

Key Findings:

  • Overall, 90.7% of Pennsylvanians surveyed indicated that they would support increasing state funds to conserve and protect open space, clean water, natural areas, wildlife habitats, parks, historic sites, forests, and farms. When asked if they would support increasing state funds at an average cost of $10 - $20 more annually per household, 80.6% were in support.
  • The results are consistent with previous surveys in 2012 and 2014. In the spring 2014 survey, 82.6% of respondents supported increasing state funds to conserve and protect open space, clean water, natural areas, wildlife habitats, parks, historic sites, forests, and farms, even if it would cost the average household $10 more annually. The 2012 survey found 77.7% support when the same question was polled
