Consultation-pinkSouthampton City Survey

Southampton City Council, in conjunction with other local public service providers, runs a telephone survey every two years to collect resident views on a range of topics. It provides an opportunity to get views of a representative sample of Southampton residents on key / priority issues and to gain better understanding of perceptions on how we are doing as a council and as a city.

Surveys have been conducted in 2014, 2016, 2018 and 2020, providing a rich longitudinal dataset. Each year a set of common Local Government Association (LGA) questions are included, which allows Southampton to be benchmarked against the national average and for trends to be tracked over time, as well as questions relating to emerging priority areas. The latest survey ran between October 2020 and December 2020 and included questions on:

  • Opinion on the local area
  • Opinion on Council and other public services
  • Communications and Digital exclusion
  • Employment
  • City of Culture bid
  • Transport
  • Wellbeing
