Quality of Life in New Zealand's Largest Cities
The Quality of Life survey is a collaborative local government research project. The primary purpose of the survey is to measure residents' perceptions across a range of measures impacting New Zealanders' quality of life. The survey measured the perceptions of more than 7000 residents in Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Wellington, Hutt City, Porirua, Christchurch and Dunedin, as well as the Greater Wellington area.
The survey asks people about a range of topics including housing, public transport, their feelings of safety, issues related to community and social networks, as well as perceptions of their local council. It is available in both online and hard copy (printed) format.
The 2018 Quality of Life survey was conducted by the independent research company Nielsen and was jointly funded by the participating councils.
