RFP - GCRO Quality of Life 7 (2023/24) Survey – Fieldwork and Data Preparation

  • Date of publication: 08 May 2023

The GCRO Quality of Life (QoL) survey, which runs every two to three years, has become the GCRO’s flagship project. The survey measures the quality of life, socio-economic circumstances, perceptions of service delivery, psychosocial attitudes, value-base and other characteristics of residents of the Gauteng City Region (GCR). It serves as a tracking and diagnostic tool, affording a rich information resource for policy makers and the public wanting to see where progress is being made, and where concerns remain. An important characteristic of the survey is that it provides a spatially distributed sample that reflects the adult population in the GCR.
