Minneapolis residents continue to rank the city as a great place to live, according to the results of the 2012 Minneapolis Resident Survey. According to the survey results, which were presented today to the City Council’s Committee of the Whole, 91 percent of Minneapolis residents rate the city as a very good (57 percent) or good (34 percent) place to live.

The 2012 Minneapolis Resident Survey was conducted by phone and included surveys of 1,378 people between Oct. 11, 2012 and Nov. 28, 2012, and it follows similar surveys in 2001, 2003, 2005, 2008, and 2011. The City of Minneapolis regularly conducts these surveys to learn what residents think about the quality of life in the City and how satisfied they are with City government services. The survey gives residents the opportunity to rate the quality of life in the city, as well as service delivery and their satisfaction with local government. The survey also gives residents the opportunity to provide feedback to government on what is working well and what areas need improvement, and to share their priorities for community planning and resource allocation.
