Clare Survey 2018
The Clare Local Community Development Committee (LCDC), a subcommittee of Clare County Council, has published findings of a new survey of more than 1,000 adults across Clare focusing on the county’s health, well-being and quality of life.
The Clare Survey, a strategic action of the Local Economic and Community Plan, will be used by Clare County Council to strengthen national funding applications such as the Rural and Urban Regeneration Funds and to direct resources to those areas of the county most in need. The survey will also be utilised as a benchmark to measure progress for strategies such as Local Economic and Community Plan and the Healthy Clare Strategy. The localised information contained in the survey results will complement data available under the Census and the Survey of Income and Living Conditions.
The survey, which was conducted by independent market research agency Behaviour and Attitudes Ltd. in late 2018, explored topics such as Education, Employment Status, Health & Well-being, Attitudes to Mental Health, Social Engagement, Technology and Transport.
The survey was co-funded by Clare County Council and the Limerick and Clare Education & Training Board.
