The survey conducted in August says in 2010 twice as many people lost their jobs, had pay cuts or had benefits reduced than those in 2009.

Six out of ten residents say they compensate for the tough times by eating out less, buying fewer clothes and using less energy.

One local resident is not really optimistic about the economy getting back to where it was before the recessions onset.

"It's hard to say if the economy is really going to recover at all. I really don't know. I'm not really hopeful that it's going to recover. I think we're are just going to have to get use to paying higher prices on everything and being more frugal," says Diane Donahue.

Most residents say they do not see the local economy improving until Winter 2012.

The survey is attached to this story.
