The results of the 2015 Community Leaders Survey (pdf) are in, and the Laboratory is currently viewed positively by the large majority of community leaders in New Mexico.
In fact, the 80% of community leaders who have a favorable opinion of LANL is at an all-time high. Over two-fifths (43%) of community leaders surveyed say they have a very favorable impression of LANL, which is the highest it has been since tracking began in 1998. Just 3% have an unfavorable opinion of the Lab. Just over two-thirds (68%) of the community leaders rate LANL positively as a corporate citizen in the community, with 34% giving an outstanding rating. Since 2009, there has been only slight fluctuations in LANL’s perceived corporate citizenship.
