Edmontonians’ Assessment: Access to Amenities and Services that Improve Quality of Life measures the percentage of respondents to the Edmontonians’ Perception Survey who report having access to amenities and services that will improve their quality of life. A third-party vendor conducts the survey by telephone. The methodology for this survey question has varied slightly in how the question has been introduced and presented each time it has been asked. The vendor also collects demographic data to assess whether participants reflect the population. Survey methodology and the demographic results are provided in the Appendix.
Infrastructure is designed, operated and maintained to be accessible to all Edmontonians regardless of physical, geographic, demographic or socio-economic barriers. Public infrastructure ranges from buildings and parks to libraries and affordable housing, and from roads and bridges to light rail transit.

Explanation of Performance
In 2017, the majority (68 percent) of Edmontonians surveyed agreed or
strongly agreed that they have access to infrastructure, amenities and
services that improve their quality of life. This is largely consistent with
the 2016 result.
