Part of the Social Indicators Research Series book series (SINS, volume 28)

People value the quality of life (QOL) in Winnipeg. They appreciate the size and pace of the city and its amenities; they are strongly attached to their neighborhoods; and they feel that Winnipeg is a great place to raise a family. They would like to see this QOL maintained for future generations, but they are concerned that it may be fading. At present we can only speculate on the future and that is not good enough. We need to be able to measure our efforts and to know if we are moving in the right direction. We also need measurement to assess the effectiveness of current policies and to design new ones as necessary.
