As of this morning, 46 sampled libraries in Vermont have completed the 2008 National Survey of Public Library Funding and Technology Access, which is a 29.5% response rate.
However, a total of 60 libraries have responded, either completely or in progress in Vermont, yielding a 38.5% response rate. It’s getting there!
As I have stated in the past, a minimum of 60% is required for the team to be able to analyze the state individually. It is important to receive as many responses as possible from sampled libraries, as they were chosen for the sample specifically based on the proportionality of the various metropolitan areas and poverty levels in the state.

Weâ€™re doing much better than in past years. Thank you to everyone whoâ€™s completed or nearly completed the survey. Great job.
The survey closes NOVEMBER 7, 2008, which allows just under 4 weeks for responses.
Thank you again for all of your help, and please contact me with any questions you may have.
