Here we selected key measurements of community interest and made comparisons of how things have changed over the 12-year time period. For most measurements, statistical tests were conducted to test for statistically significant changes. Tabular summaries of results are provided with key findings highlighted in bulleted form.

The first set of results for the visitor survey was presented to the Sanctuary Advisory Council at their December 2009 meeting and at two evening community meetings in Key West and Key Largo. Additional results have been completed since the December presentation and added to the original December 2009 presentation which is posted below. We will continue to add reports with additional comparisons for both the visitor and resident surveys as they are completed.
