Philadelphia Quality of Life Survey

Recently the Inquirer ran an article by Andrew Maykuth, "Poll finds city voters uneasy," (3/04)

If you want more information, the 7 page summary and the raw data (one of these files runs 61 pages) are also available on the website.

Some things I noticed:

More Democrats that Republicans think city officials are corrupt.

The more money and education you have the better you rate Philadelphia as a place to live.

People's view of how safe their neighborhood is depends on what neighborhood they live.

Some of these are common sense but there are a number of other, more interesting, information bits in the results if you are willing to sort through for them.
