NW Poll

How do you feel about NW rain?

Wednesday, April 11, 2018by  PEMCO Insurance

According to the 2018 PEMCO Insurance Northwest Poll, more than half of people surveyed say they’re ok with how much rain we get here, and three-quarters say they actually have a positive opinion about the climate overall. Additionally, nearly 80 percent of residents say they wouldn’t use an umbrella if it rained.

What about you? How do you feel about our Northwest weather and about using umbrellas?

Using a 7-point scale, where 7 means you absolutely love the climate where you live and 1 means you absolutely hate the climate where you live, how would you rate your opinion about the climate?

About the PEMCO Insurance Northwest Poll
PEMCO Insurance commissioned this independent survey, conducted by FBK Research of Seattle, that asked Washington and Oregon residents questions about driving habits and attitudes toward current Northwest issues. The sample size, 600 respondents in Washington and 600 in Oregon, yields an accuracy of +/- 4.1 percent at the 95 percent confidence level. In other words, if this study were conducted 100 times, in 95 instances the data will not vary by more than the associated error range.​
