The Asia Foundation’s City Life Survey Project Finds Optimism Among Myanmar’s Urban Residents
July 13, 2018 — Coconuts Yangon highlights The Asia Foundation’s City Life Survey project and reports on how urban residents of Myanmar say they feel about the direction the cities and countries are heading in.
Ever wonder what your fellow urbanites think about the city that they live in? A new survey by The Asia Foundation takes a first stab at figuring out what Myanmar’s cities are like as places to work in and live in.
In partnership with the Yangon School of Political Science, the City Life Survey Project surveyed 1,400 participants from five different religious groups and 23 ethnic groups in the urban wards of five townships in Yangon, Hpa-an and Taunggyi.
The survey asked participants about eight aspects of urban life: city livability, wellbeing, gender, work and economic opportunities, quality of government services, tax attitudes, identity and community, and their overall outlook on the direction of their country or city.
