Measuring Public Awareness of Smart City Concepts and Efforts
Cities in the United States and around the world have begun to look to smarter solutions to help better manage existing resources and assets, effectively deal with growing populations, help mitigate expenses related to aging infrastructure, and provide a better quality of life and standard of living for city residents, businesses, employees, and visitors.

However, how well are these efforts being recognized by the public? This study provides context and understanding of a smart city, without biasing the respondents toward any particular metric or definition, and gives both cities and solution providers insights into how the US population views the smart city concept.

Key Takeaway:

Hypothesis: “Smart city” is not a well-recognized term across the United States.

Summary of responses: This statement seemed to be accurate, with barely one-third of the general population saying they were familiar with the term. The higher the level of education and/or income the respondent reported, the higher the likelihood that he or she would state that they had heard of the term “smart city.” No individual with less education than a high school diploma said that he or she had ever heard of the term “smart city.”

Analysis: If a city is considering smart solutions to help improve the quality of life of lower income groups, then it may
need to improve the communication of its efforts to these groups.
