Clatsop County residents are invited to take a survey to rate the county’s livability, economy, public services and other measures of overall health.

Participants will be asked about topics like health care and housing, jobs and traffic, whether the county is worth visiting and what it is like to raise a family here.

The survey is meant to inform the county Board of Commissioners and county staff as they craft policy and determine budget priorities in the service of long-term goals.

The survey began in the fall with 3,200 households receiving mailed survey forms or postcards that directed them to online links, the county said. Those households, which represent a random sample of the community, can still complete the survey if they haven't already.

Visit the county's website to participate. The deadline is Jan. 26.
