Community Wellbeing in the Western Downs: 2014 and 2016

April 1st, 2017

Even though some aspects of wellbeing decreased and others improved, overall community wellbeing remains similar and robust over two years of CSG development. The 2016 CSIRO Community Wellbeing and Responding to Change survey shows the biggest change in wellbeing from 2014 was the decrease in satisfaction in relation to jobs and employment opportunities, and the biggest improvements were in roads and the quality of the environment (e.g. dust and noise).

This project examined and measured the changes since the end of the construction and beginning of the operations phases through comparisons with survey 1 in 2014.
