More parks or more parking? Playgrounds or night life? Community facilities or connectivity? Wouldn’t it be great if the community had a real voice in all the things that matter most in their community?

One of Australia’s largest social research projects, running from 28March to 30 June 2021, will focus on what really matters to our communities and how their current neighbourhoods are performing.

Other ranking systems, like The Economist Intelligence Unit’s Global Liveability Index, are external organisations looking in and judging our cities, towns and neighbourhoods.

And unlike other projects that utilise web-scraped data like social media or traffic counts, this is an attempt to build a larges social research data base regarding community values and place performance ensuring that the voice of the community is heard in decision making.

The 2021 Australian Liveability Census will be the first nationally consistent, community-led liveability research project – that gives a voice to the people who actually live in our places.

Everyone is invited to get involved by completing a 15-minute survey [placescore.org/census] that has the potential to impact thousands of decisions being made by governments across the country. Respondents will also have the chance to win prize vouchers.

Place Score CEO Kylie Legge said:

I’ve always been passionate about empowering local communities to have more of a say in the decisions that impact their everyday lives. The 2021 Australian Liveability Census will help change the way that people’s values and ideas for change are actually captured and measured. We are turning opinions into data that helps government make better decisions.’’

Over 70,000 Australians have already participated in a Place Score research study, and over 50 local governments and other decision makers are using the data to set strategy and define priorities for investment. www.placescore.org

The 2021 Australian Liveability Census is supported by funding from the federal government Department of Industry, Energy and Resources through the Boosting Female Founders Initiative.
