In June 2012 a survey was conducted of Danville and Pittsylvania County citizens at the request of The Alliance for Progress in Southern Virginia. The purpose of the research was to better understand local attitudes toward uranium mining and issues surrounding uranium mining. The questions, which are shown below, are the exact questions answered by nearly 600 citizens. The size of the sample assures that the results of the research are statistically significant.
(The percentages listed do not equal 100%. In each question, “don’t know” or “no answer” responses are not included in the survey results for the purpose of clarity. In addition, these numbers are inclusive of those who feel strongly or somewhat strongly either way and are listed as one number. This was a telephone survey and the questions listed in this summary were asked in this exact order.)
