Understanding quality of life in the GCR
GCRO is currently running the second of its large sample quality of life surveys. The 2009 survey delivered a wealth of data, and the 2011 survey will provide even more, especially given that comparative data will now be available on key indicators across the two years. However it is imperative that this data be turned into informative and useful analysis of the nature of quality of life in the region in order to inform public debate, government action, and more targeted academic enquiry on emerging issues. This project sees focus groups and academic engagements, invited comments from key thinkers, and a benchmarking of the results from the two surveys against available comparative data from other city regions, to deepen our understanding of what the data is saying about quality of life in the region.
