      Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage (Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage, 2003-09)
      This issue of Anchorage Community Indicators Series 1, "Anchorage Community Survey," presents a brief descriptive study of residential stability in Anchorage. In the spring of 2003 the Justice Center conducted a telephone survey of randomly selected households in Anchorage to collect information on a variety of topics, including residential stability. In all, more than 1,900 individual respondents 18 years of age or older participated in the survey. To measure residential stability throughout the municipality, respondents were asked by interviewers how long they had lived in their current neighborhood. Answers ranged from 2 weeks to 62 years; the median length of residency was 5 years.
