What is the Safe City Logan Community Survey?

Through the City of Logan Safe City Strategy and Action Plan 2016 - 2020 Council has committed to delivering a Safe City Logan community survey annually.

The survey and responses will be used by Council to:

  • Further, understand how the community feel about different areas of community safety and crime in the City of Logan.
  • Aid Council in prioritising and planning community safety and crime prevention activities for delivery over the next year.
  • Further, understand if we are meeting our outcomes of the City of Logan Safe City Strategy and Action Plan 2016 - 2020.
The 2019 survey is Council's fourth annual survey.

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

A total of 680 responses were received to the 2018 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% eg. 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%).
