This report summarizes the findings from the 2015 Public Agenda/WNYC New York Metro Area Survey. Residents of the New York metropolitan area feel trapped by rising costs, stagnant wages and a lack of opportunity. At the same time, government gets low ratings on the issues people are most concerned about, and a majority of residents agree that government is mainly responsive to the rich. Still, people are willing to try new government policies and volunteer their time to address key concerns. The survey was conducted between June 29 and July 21, 2015, with 1,535 residents in the New York metro area, including New York City, Long Island, southern New York State, northern New Jersey and southern Connecticut.
