Social Indicators for City of Melbourne Residents 2018

The City of Melbourne Social Indicators Survey (CoMSIS) was conducted for the first time in 2018. The survey collects data about the state of health, well-being, participation and connection of communities in the Melbourne Local Government Area, primarily to report on key Council Plan 2017-21 municipal outcome indicators.

This new survey program replaces the previous Future Melbourne surveys and will be conducted on an annual basis.

This data set provides indicator results for 1,247 residents surveyed via a mix of telephone and online interviewing. Results have been provided by suburb, gender and age groups and has been weighted according to population proportions for the Melbourne LGA. Responses such as don't know, don't understand, prefer not to say, not applicable etc. were excluded in the calculation of indicators. The sample sizes shown reflect this accordingly.
