Quality of Life Study

What Matters in Greater Phoenix: Indicators of Our Quality of Life

Morrison Institute conducts annual research on the issue of quality of life—both factual and public perceptions. The goal is to provide an objective tool that defines and measures quality of life in the Valley and compares public perceptions of it to actual “indicator” data. The report—What Matters in Greater Phoenix: Indicators of Our Quality of Life—aids decisionmaking as public and private sector groups come together to solve problems and improve the Valley for all residents. This project is sponsored by numerous business groups.

What Matters - The Maturing of Greater Phoenix is available for online viewing. It is fourth in the series of indicators of our quality of life, 2004 edition.

This study will be conducted once every few years. Reports in 1997, 1998 and 1999 suggest that "indicator issues" do not move appreciably in only one year.

*1997 edition available in hard copy format only.
