Bristol’s Quality of Life survey provides an annual snapshot of people’s lifestyles and how they feel about living in Bristol. It gives local residents an opportunity to voice their opinions about living in Bristol, local public services, and what they think needs to be done differently in their area.
This year, for the first time, the survey is open to all members of the public aged 16 and over, giving them the chance to tell the council and other local public services what life is like where they live.
The results are used by the council, health service and other public sector partners to help plan local services, track change and improve the quality of life in Bristol. Those working in the VCSE sector can also use the results to help inform their own work and services. The survey is the council's main tool for providing neighbourhood level statistics and public perception information.
