Fredericton is an excellent place to live and residents are very positive about the provision of municipal government services. That is the finding of the City of Fredericton’s 2009 Citizen Attitude Survey, which was presented to City Council for the first time on February 8, 2010. The survey also indicates that citizens continue to feel Fredericton is a safe city and have a positive outlook when it comes to economic growth and development. They give all city departments high marks when it comes to the delivery of services and programs.
The survey was conducted by MarketQuest Research with a random sample of 403 city residents, between November 10 and 18, 2009. The overall margin of error for the survey is +/- 4.86% at the 95% confidence level (19 times out of 20).
The primary objectives of the Citizen Attitude Survey were to access perceptions of the City, satisfaction with City services, determine ways to stay informed, and determine the main issues facing the City. The survey has been conducted bi-annually since 1985.
