The Essex Resident Survey is our biggest survey exercise and aims to generate insights:
• on residents’ aspirations, views and values – helping to shape strategy, inform key ECC delivery programmes and our engagement with residents;
• to inform specific decisions on service transformation and resource prioritisation; and
• that help better understand the views of residents on key issues, informing the work that Essex County Council and its partners do to help improve life in Essex.
The 2020 survey was delivered in partnership with Lake Market Research and conducted in line with Market Research Society standards.
The 4 areas explored in the research were:
1. Local area perceptions
2. Opportunity and aspiration
3. Health and wellbeing
4. Planning for later life
