About the Survey

The Mapping the Food Environment survey is a six-part, 88-question survey instrument intended to help the team gain a better understanding of how and where residents of central Columbus get their food, and what factors influence their decisions about what they eat. The survey was administered in-person at several sites throughout our study area in central Columbus, and was also available online. Participants in the survey were eligible to enter a raffle for prizes including grocery giftcards and Apple iPad Minis.

The online survey was open to anyone age 18 or older residing in ZIP codes 43201, 43203, 43204, 43205, 43209, 43211, 43215, 43219, 43222, and 43223.
