Importance and Urgency – All Data – Cohort by Ethnicity and Ward

Importance of the Strategic Pillars (X Axis) x Urgency to take action on Strategic Pillars (Y Axis)

This chart combines responses to two questions to create an interactive scatter plot. This chart presents the results based on all data by ethnicity and ward. You can hover over the chart to reveal more information on each circle.
The chart is structured as follows:

  • X-Axis is the response to the question “How important do you think each of these strategic pillars are to shaping the future of University City?”. The scale is: 1 = Not at all important; 10 = Critically important to the future
  • X-Axis is the response to the question “How urgent do you think it is for community leadership to take action on each of these strategic pillars?” The scale is: 1 =Not urgent right now; 10 = Critically urgent right now

Key things to note:

  • All of the City’s ethnic groups across the three Wards considered the strategic pillars to be important, and a majority of the groups indicated a sense of urgency to act on the pillars.

  • All of the City’s ethnic groups felt that Education and Schools was the most important and urgent strategic pillar, followed closely by Olive Boulevard redevelopment.
