2019 State Legislative Priorities Survey

Each year NAR surveys state Association Executives and Government Affairs Directors  to identify the legislative priorities for each U.S. state and territory to develop resources in the following year. The survey is conducted by NAR’s Research Group and the REALTOR® Party.

2019 Legislative Priorities Survey

A survey was sent to all state Government Affairs Directors (GADs) and Association Executives (AEs) in September 2018. Results reflect only ONE completed response per state. In three cases, both a state GAD and a state AE responded to the survey. In those cases, the final results reflect only the response of the state GAD. 53 out of 54 U.S. states and territories completed the survey, yielding a 98 percent response rate. The margin of error for the quantitative results is +/-1.81 percent. This is a high enough response rate and a low enough margin of error for results of closed-ended questions to be considered statistically valid and representative of all U.S. states and territories to within this margin of error.
