It has been widely acknowledged that there is a lack of robust intelligence on the lifestyle characteristics of our local population. The Living in Warwickshire survey was launched on 18th April 2016 to attempt to address this gap, highlighting how residents in the county live and identifying some of the needs and challenges they face. This work will provide valuable intelligence which will inform council work programmes to address local needs and shape services for the future.
The survey was open to all Warwickshire residents aged over 18 years old and was initially available to complete online only. The survey deadline was extended from Tuesday 31st May to July 1st 2016, in order to increase our response rate and to target under-represented areas. Paper copies of the survey were also made available from Tuesday 31st May to help increase the response rate.
We had a fantastic response rate with nearly 4,000 residents completing the survey. The attached briefing note looks at who responded to our survey and includes a breakdown of respondents based on age, gender, ethnicity and location, in addition to some taster findings.
