Council undertakes a community research survey every two years with a representative cross section of Maitland residents. The survey is an important indicator of how satisfied the community is with Council, our services and the way we manage a range of areas of responsibility and influence.
The research includes a randomly selected phone survey of Maitland residents and a number of subsequent focus groups, where identified topics are examined in more detail and further explored.
To assist with carrying out the community survey, Council has engaged IRIS Research to conduct the telephone survey and run the focus groups.

The survey will be undertaken via phone interviews with a representative sample of the Maitland community 18 years or over.
If the quota for a particular age group is met, then researchers may not complete/proceed with the survey if a caller is in that age group.
The survey is conducted with a statistically valid representative sample of 600 people who live in the Maitland LGA.
