Abstract


  • The increasing population in Australia is highly urbanized. There is no doubt that the rapid growth in the numbers

    of residents in the metropolitan areas can highly affect the conditions in the public realm, places where people

    naturally interact with each other and their community. Therefore, a valid measurement of well-being is required

    for a planner to come up with solid decisions for improving the quality of urban management. An experimental

    technique is proposed in this paper for calculating the subjective area-based indicators of liveability based on the

    people’s perception of surrounding environmental and social quality. In our study, a telephone survey on perceived

    liveability is conducted for Randwick and Green Square area in Sydney. Calculated indices based on the survey data

    are discussed among several population categories.

    Key words: Liveable Community; Measures of Well-being; CATI Survey.
