Community Wellbeing Survey final report
In spring 2016, just over 11,000 randomly selected households-- representing 25% of all County households-- were invited to take part in the Oxford County Community Wellbeing Survey. The survey, administered by the Canadian Index of Wellbeing, will be used to help set meaningful targets in the Future Oxford Community Sustainability Plan.
The survey's final report, shared with Oxford County Council on December 14, 2016, is a snapshot of the wellbeing of our citizens in areas such as education opportunities, job satisfaction, health behaviours and perceptions, community involvement, the environment, and much more. The survey also maps wellbeing themes—like quality of work and environmental concerns-- to the sustainability plan’s community, environment and economy pillars.
