Quality of life

The Quality of Live survey gives local residents an opportunity to voice their opinions about issues close to their hearts and their views on local public services. It has been an annual survey since 2001, but does change over time.  The statistics are analysed to a ward level and also equality groups such as age, sex and ethnicity.

The results are used by us, health services and other public sector partners to help plan local services, track change and improve the quality of life in Bristol. The survey is our main tool for providing neighbourhood level statistics and public perception information.

The quality of life results cover topics such as:

  • health
  • lifestyles
  • community
  • local services
  • public perception about living in Bristol
