Nottinghamshire County Council has once again appointed Enventure Research to undertake its Annual Satisfaction Survey. The survey gathers information on local perceptions of value for money, communication, quality of life and health and wellbeing regarding the Council’s public services. It is extremely important to local authorities and other public bodies, as the results are used as a way of measuring the performance of local authorities and their partners. This year the Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner is involved with the survey to understand people’s experiences of antisocial behaviour and crime.
Enventure Research has conducted the research on behalf of the Council each year since 2012. To date, approximately 5,500 residents have been surveyed face to face across the seven districts and boroughs across Nottinghamshire (Ashfield, Bassetlaw, Broxtowe, Gedling, Mansfield, Newark and Sherwood, and Rushcliffe).
The 2017 survey will again be administered by trained market research interviewers at pre-selected sampling points across the county. A minimum of 150 residents will be surveyed in each of the seven areas, with quotas set on age, gender, ethnicity and working status to ensure a representative sample is achieved.
The fieldwork is due to commence this autumn. The survey findings will continue to help the Council understand the priorities of local residents and inform decisions about future Council services and budgets.
Andrew Cameron, Research Manager, commented:
“We are very pleased to be working again with Nottinghamshire County Council to deliver its 2017 Annual Satisfaction Survey and look forward to getting started.”
