City of Wichita, USA - Bill Simulator

Closed 15 Jun 2019

Opened 13 May 2019

Overview

The City of Wichita in the USA used a Bill Simulator to involve their citizens in setting their property tax rates. 

By increasing, decreasing or leaving services the same, participants are able to see in real time the impact of their decisions on their specific property tax bill.

The ability to see the real time impact on their personal bill meant that participants would be more likely to respond truthfully & take more time to deliberate over their responses, therefore providing better quality answers & better informing the final decision.
