(MUNCIE) - Ball State University officials have released the results of their first annual Hoosier poll.

The Bowen Center For Public Affairs commissioned an academic non-partisan based survey of Indiana residents to get an accurate sense of what Hoosiers see as the top priorities and issues facing the state.

Center Co-Director Ray Scheele says the number one issue by an overwhelming majority was jobs and economic issues. Scheele says that usually is number one or 2 on any poll, but the results were surprising in that the issue ranked number one by over 80-percent.

Scheele says the other surprise was government efficiency as the second priority issue. The results showed a lack of trust in local government officials, but relatively high support of state government.

The results were sent to all state legislators and the governor for their information.

The Bowen Center plans to take the Hoosier poll annually with the results available before each legislative session.
