Horizon Research surveyed 737 adults within Auckland City, asking them to rate the importance of 21 issues to them personally, and then rate the Government’s management of those issues.
The survey represents the 18+ population in Auckland at the most recent census. The maximum margin of error at a 95% confidence level is +/- 3.6%.
The Auckland issues survey indicates priorities for the city’s citizens – and which ones to manage better if the Government wishes to lift it ratings, and potentially its vote at this year’s general election on September 23.
