National benchmarks to help monitor and evaluate local area progress. 


The local government sector's need for credibly sourced, genuinely representative and externally comparable survey data and insights has never been greater. Residents, other levels of government and even the private sector are placing higher-expectations on councils to ensure that their community's views are more comprehensively incorporated, monitored and ultimately evaluated in local government strategic planning and advocacy.

Community Views and the reporting and exploratory platform have been created to meet this need.
