Residents' Survey 2018
Haringey at a glance
In early 2018, Haringey Council commissioned market research company BMG Research to conduct a survey of Haringey residents in order to understand more about their lives, attitudes, and feelings about their local areas. BMG Research conducted 1,900 face-to-face interviews with a representative sample of residents from across the borough, and found from these interviews that:
- More than four in five residents are satisfied with their local area as a place to live
- Almost four in five residents feel the borough is a good place to bring up children
- There is a high degree of community cohesion in Haringey, with people from different backgrounds getting on well
- Perceptions of safety are high on average, but vary considerably by neighbourhood
- Work and housing are both key reasons for people moving to the borough and key reasons for people being likely to move away from the borough
- Almost two thirds of residents describe their financial situation as just about managing
The results of the survey provide a better understanding of what matters to our residents, how residents feel, and how the council can improve quality of life and tackle inequality across the borough. The survey findings provide a resource for our partners across the public, private, and voluntary sectors and will form a key part of the evidence base of the council’s strategic plans.

The Residents' Survey and State of the Borough together provide a rich picture of Haringey, and they will both be used in the council’s work to improve the lives of local residents.
