A new survey designed by University of Wyoming Extension and the Cent$ible Nutrition Program to better understand how Wyomingites gather information is open for residents to share their experiences.
“We are a rural state, so having accurate information about how populations in rural states engage with media and social media is hard to find from national groups,” Kali McCrackin Goodenough, CNP marketing coordinator, said.
According to McCrackin Goodenough, the survey is completely anonymous. Consent form and contact information will be kept separate from results, which will be used to explore trends across Wyoming.
Those who complete the survey will receive a four-in-one kitchen tool as a thank-you. The survey requires approximately 20 minutes to complete and can be found here.
The data from the survey will provide insights on which social media and traditional media platforms people in Wyoming primarily use to gather information and allow groups, including UW Extension and CNP, to better serve their audiences, McCrackin Goodenough said.
“Having data for our state that is relevant and real is valuable,” she said.
CNP aims to develop a social marketing campaign related to healthy habits and plans to use this data to better share that campaign across the state, according to McCrackin Goodenough.
“This is a chance for people in Wyoming to say where they want to get their information from,” she said.
