A resident centric approach to understanding liveability

Living in Place is an independent, robust and repeatable community survey that seeks to understand and advance the liveability of Australians’ local areas.
What makes somewhere a good place to live?
How do your residents rate their local area's performance?
What do you need to do to maintain and improve liveability?

Living in Place

Combines your residents’ values and experiences to understand and advance the liveability of your local government area.


  • Understand your community's values

    Delivers a deep understanding as to what your residents believe makes somewhere a good place to live, how values differ within and across your community and how your local government area compares to others.

  • Understand your community's experiences

    Provides insight as to how your residents rate their local area’s performance against the individual attributes that contribute to making somewhere a good place to live, how these experiences differ across your community and how well your local government area delivers relative to others.

How it works

    Your Living in Place results are reported across four complementary platforms, including an online dashboard that efficiently represents and communicates the key findings, a customised insights report and workshop that builds narrative around your findings and they mean for your community and strategic planning, and a set of summary data-tables to facilitate further analysis.
