Perth Perception Survey

In 2012, and again in 2015 and 2018, the Committee for Perth has commissioned Ipsos to conduct a study into residents’ perceptions of Perth and how this varied among expatriates and those born and raised locally. The study explored residents’ overall satisfaction with living in Perth and its drivers. It also explored the perceived advantages and disadvantages living in Perth and people’s expectations for the future.

The aim of the survey is to understand:

  • Why people chose to live in Perth
  • Views on what Perth is about
  • What people would like to see changed in future
  • Perceptions of infrastructure developments
  • Entrepreneurial and business aspirations
  • What people look for in their work
  • Plans for retirement.
