The Quality of Life Survey is a partnership between the Auckland, Wellington, Porirua, Hutt, Christchurch and Dunedin City Councils. The Survey was first conducted in 2003, repeated in 2004, and then undertaken every two years since (i.e. in 2006, 2008, 2010,2012). The Survey measures the perceptions of over 5,000 residents living in most of New Zealand’s major cities.

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 towards strategic social, cultural and economic goals.
