The Quality of Life (QoL) survey provides an annual snapshot of the quality of life in Bristol.
This year, for the first time, the survey is open to every Bristol resident over 16 who wants to take part.
It also gives local residents an opportunity to voice their opinions about issues close to their hearts and their views on local public services. It is an annual survey now in its sixteenth year, but does change over time. The statistics are analysed to a ward level and also by age, gender and ethnic minority etc.
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. The survey is the council’s main tool for providing neighbourhood level statistics and public perception information.
