About Open Data
The Essex Resident Survey is Essex County Council’s biggest survey exercise and aims to generate insights on residents’ aspirations, views and values, helping to shape strategy, and to inform key delivery programmes and our engagement with residents. With almost 6,000 residents responding to the 2022 survey, it allows us to better understand the diversity of views and experiences within the county across a range of geographies and cohorts.
The dashboard will allow users to explore the findings from the 2022 survey across a range of topics including personal wellbeing, community strength, volunteering, and attitudes towards the environment and climate change. It will enable users to view data at both the whole Essex level and for particular sub-groups and geographies, including individual districts.
