Community Wellbeing Survey

Every two years we conduct a Community Wellbeing Survey to measure our community’s perception of their wellbeing and to understand which of their aspirations they want us to focus on. Find out more about the survey and access latest results below.

About the Community Wellbeing Survey

The Community Wellbeing Survey provides us with key data that helps inform decisions about our services, facilities and programs to ensure they remain responsive to the needs of our community.
 
The survey asks a series of questions about how survey participants perceive their wellbeing now and into the future, as well as questions about which of the community aspirations are most important to them.
 
To ensure participants are representative of the demographics of our City, we set quotas for gender, age and composition of participants according to the latest Census results.
 
An external agency conducts the survey for us and contacts residents via phone to invite them to participate in the survey.
 
The results are then compared to previous years to understand how we are performing over time.

City of Melville Community Aspirations

The aspirations mentioned above come from our Strategic Community Plan, our highest-level strategic document which sets out our community’s vision and aspirations for the future.
 
This survey helps us identify how we can contribute to achieving their aspirations and where we should or shouldn’t be focusing our efforts.
