Perth Perception Surveys

Committee for Perth commissions a study into residents’ perceptions of Perth and how this varies among expatriates and those born and raised locally. Introduced in 2012 and commissioned every three years, the study explores residents’ overall satisfaction with living in Perth and its drivers. It also explores the perceived advantages and disadvantages of living in Perth and people’s expectations for the future.

The surveys aim 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
