Jury Participation Survey

Trial by jury is a fundamental principle of our system of justice. Jury service is therefore both an opportunity and an obligation of every American citizen. Unfortunately, not every citizen sees it that way.

The City of Philadelphia has an approximate response rate of only 60%, and is looking for ways to improve that response rate without taking the drastic measure of instituting a scofflaw court.

The link below is a short (1-2 minute) survey that will hopefully answer the following questions:

      1) Why do you not respond to a summons
      2) If you do respond, what ways can we improve how we do things

Thank you in advance for your participation.
