The Quality of Life Survey is a partnership between 12 Quality of Life Project Cities and the Ministry of Social Development. The Quality of Life survey has been conducted every two years since 2004 (2003, 2004, 2006 and 2008) and measures the perceptions of over 7,500 residents living in the country’s largest cities and districts.
Topics covered in the survey include:
- Quality of Life
- Health and Well-being
- Crime and safety
- Community, Culture and Social Networks
- Council Processes
- Built Environment
- Public Transport
- Lifestyle – Work and Study
Information obtained from the survey will be used to help inform central and local government policy makers. The information will be particularly useful for cities undertaking monitoring of progress toward achieving community outcomes under their Local Government Act requirements.
