How many people responded to the Safe City survey last year?

A total of 677 responses were received to the 2017 survey.

Based on Logan City's population of approximately 300,000 people, the margin of error is less than 3.8%. This means that we can be sure that if we had asked the question to the entire population, the error variance would be within + or - 3.8% e.g. if 92% of respondents reported that they felt safe in their local neighbourhood after dark we can be sure that if we surveyed the entire population, the true result would lie between 88.2% and 95.8% (which is + or - 3.8%).
