Edmontonians’ Assessment: Connected to Community measures the percentage of respondents to the Edmontonians’ Perception Survey who indicate they feel connected to their community. A third-party vendor conducts the survey by telephone. The vendor also collects demographic data to assess whether participants reflect the population. Survey methodology and the demographic results are provided in the Appendix.
Social connections are important to people’s well-being and quality of life. The strongest contributors to connectedness are that the community is friendly and supportive and that people feel welcome and socially included in their community.
