Community Profiles

99 Community Profiles

The Sigma Study is a decennial survey of 99 small towns in Iowa that has been done in 1994, 2004, and 2014.   To study the condition of Iowa small towns, residents of the 99 towns were surveyed to learn about their assessment of local services and amenities, social conditions, and perceptions of local quality of life.
