You can find the Quality of Life  survey results on the council’s website. They feature the new Bristol Quality of Life 2023/24 Data Dashboard which comprises the full set of Quality of Life 2023/24 indicators at all reporting levels, including Wards and Equalities groups, and the Quality of Life 2023/24 Priority Indicators report.

Headline indicators and identified challenges from the Quality of Life  survey, such as those highlighted below, are useful for supporting and informing One City board activity.

Key Findings:

  • More people are walking or cycling to work (35%).
  • Fewer people are at ‘higher risk of alcohol-related health problems’ (13%).
