The City of Durham’s 2013 resident satisfaction survey was just released today. As many might know from the outward show of pride displayed for Durham, the results are very positive.
The survey shows 81 percent of residents feel the city as an “excellent” or “good” place to live and 78 percent feel the city as an “excellent” or “good” place to work. These ratings remain steady from the 2011 survey, which were 82 percent and 77 percent respectively. Areas that influence overall perceptions of Durham also ranked highly, with three-in-four people satisfied with the quality of life in their neighborhood, the quality of services provided by the City, and two-in-three people satisfied with the overall quality of life in the city.
