Life in Sydney 2021

Ipsos Public Affairs is presenting at the 2021 Committee for Sydney Summit the recent results from their co-designed Life in Sydney annual survey.

An optimistic community outlook on 2021 is setting a positive context in Sydney for key reforms addressing the 2021 Committee agenda.

The January 2021 results of Life in Sydney continue to show some encouragingly high levels of community satisfaction with quality of life. Despite the recent Covid-19 resurgence right before the long-awaited end of year break, 4 in 5 Sydneysiders (80%) remain satisfied with their life in Sydney.

Similarly, community expectations for the next 12 months have improved with a larger proportion, compared to our Q3 2020 results, of Sydneysiders who think their quality of life will get better in 2021.

The report drills down to provide insights on community sentiment and compares Sydney results to other major cities that is New York, London and Singapore. It also reviews public opinion on key reforms the Committee for Sydney intends to address in 2021 such immigration, transition away from coal and Covid-19 recovery strategy.
