Existing Programming Needs Satisfaction

Respondents were asked about the LEVEL OF EXISTING PROGRAMMING:

“Currently, how well are your household’s needs being meet by the EXISTING following recreation and community programming?”

SCALE: -5 = Well short of needs; 0 = About right; +5 = More than enough

The first chart offers the results in a larger summary grouping. The second chart (scroll down) shows the full data by each point on the scale.

Key things to note:

  • Generally the data is skewed to the ‘Short of current need’ side of the continuum, with 35-65% of responses saying it is short of their needs. This is most pronounced in the fitness and wellness programs.
  • Typically, between 30-40% of people say the needs are currently about right. About 10-15% people say there is currently more than enough.
