What is a good neighbor? Being quiet, friendly, respecting your neighbor’s privacy, and cleaning up after your pet, CAI’s 2016 National Good Neighbor Day Survey finds.

Eighty-three percent of respondents say face-to-face interactions are the most common way they communicate with their neighbors.

Also, having a dog helps to meet your neighbors, the survey found. Eighty-three percent of respondents said they get to know their neighbors while walking their dog.

Many people say they’re proud of the neighborhood they live in. Eighty-six percent say they are proud to live in their neighborhood and actively recommend it to their friends and colleagues.
