Auckland fares badly in quality of life survey
Aucklanders have the poorest sense of quality of life of people in eight New Zealand cities, a survey has found. The Nielsen 2018 Quality of Life survey showed Tauranga had the best quality of life among the eight cities surveyed, with 91 per cent of residents saying their quality of life was good. Tauranga also scored highest for health, emotional wellbeing and appreciation of the natural environment. Hutt City and Wellington were not far behind Tauranga in the quality of life stakes, with 90 and 89 percent of residents respectively saying their quality of life was good. Only 79 per cent of Aucklanders said their city was a great place to live, while 94 percent of Wellingtonians thought their city was a wonderful place to be.
Porirua residents had the dimmest view of their city, with just 72 per cent saying it was a great place to reside in.
Auckland is not very popular when it comes to quality of life.
