This measure displays responses received from the City of Fort Worth Citizen Survey. The survey is conducted approximately every two years. One way to measure how well we are doing at achieving our vision of being the most livable and best managed city in the country is to examine how satisfied residents are, overall, with Fort Worth as a place to live. The target for this measure is for satisfaction in Fort Worth to be greater than the US Average.

Data Source: This data is provided to the city by the administering body of the Fort Worth Citizen Survey, the ETC Institute. 

Resident satisfaction with the city as a place to live has remained consistently high for the past 6 years, and has remained above the average national satisfaction each year. While national satisfaction decreased 14 percentage points between 2015 and 2017, Fort Worth decreased by only 2.2 percentage points, and remains high at 84.1%, indicating that residents continue to be satisfied with Fort Worth.
