General Quality of Life

Every two years, the City of Round Rock conducts a survey of its citizens to see how well the city government is meeting their needs and to determine the issues of concern to them. Below are the specific questions from the survey and the results. Analysis by Jeff Montgomery of Montgomery & Associates.

Key survey findings

General quality of life

Q. In general, do you think the City of Round Rock is headed in the right direction or the wrong direction?

Right direction: 76 percent
Wrong direction: 10.5 percent
Pro-con/Depends: 3.8percent
Don't know/No opinion: 9.8 percent
 
Analysis: 76% said right direction; 10.5% said wrong direction; 3.8% said it would depend; and 9.8% didn’t know or had no opinion.

These excellent numbers are almost identical to the response we got in 2002, when 75.8% said right direction and 10.2% said wrong direction. Those numbers in turn were a slight improvement over 2000, when 68.8% said right direction and 15.8% said wrong direction.

Q. In general, do you think the quality of life in the City of Round Rock is getting better, getting worse, or staying about the same?

Getting better: 44 percent
Getting worse: 13 percent
About the same: 36.84 percent
Pro-con/Depends: 1.8 percent
Don't know/No opinion: 4.3 percent
 
Analysis: 44% said the quality of life is getting better; 13.3% said worse; 36.8% said it is staying about the same; 1.8% said it would depend; and 4.3% had no opinion.

This is actually a small improvement over 2002 (just above the margin of error), in that even fewer people say that the quality of life is getting worse: in 2002, 43.4% said the quality of life is getting better; 19% said worse; 30.4% said it is staying about the same.

And that was an improvement over 2000, when 36.2% said the quality of life was getting better; and 24.8% said worse.
