UnhideHide About your local area - important features

Theme : Perception Surveys | Sub Theme : Place Survey

  • DescriptionQ1 Thinking generally, which of the things below would you say are most important in making somewhere a good place to live?
  • Headline FindingsIn terms of quality of life; crime, clean streets, health and housing remain the most important things in making somewhere a good place to live. In terms of the aspects that most need improving in Sandwell; activities for teenagers, clean streets, the level of crime, road and pavement repairs, and job prospects all feature highly.
    The key areas in Sandwell which residents score above average on both importance and in need of improvement are the level of crime and clean streets, which is consistent with previous survey results.

UnhideHide About your local area - satisfaction - NI005 & NI038

Theme : Perception Surveys | Sub Theme : Place Survey

  • DescriptionResponses to the questions which ask NI005-how satisfied respondents are with the area as a place to live, NI138 - and with their home and area as a place to live (respondents aged over 65)
  • Headline FindingsNI 5 (overall satisfaction) has seen an improvement since the last Local Govt. User Satisfaction Survey in 2006/07. Overall, 62% of respondents are satisfied with their local area (compared with 60% in 2006/07).
    * key groups who are more likely to be dissatisfied include younger adults, BME groups, and those in West Bromwich and Smethwick.
    Despite the improvement, Sandwell ranks third worst out of all Metropolitan (Mets) and London Boroughs on this indicator.
    Residents were also asked about satisfaction with their home as a place to live. The majority (82%) are satisfied with their home, with just one in ten (nine per cent) dissatisfied.
    NI 138 combines the satisfaction scores of residents aged over 65 with the local area and with their home. Generally, older residents tend to be more positive than their younger counterparts, and this is true in Sandwell. Satisfaction with the home
    increases to 90% for over 65s (from an average of 82%) and satisfaction with the area increases to 76% (from 62% overall). This provides an overall NI score on this measure of 72%.

Theme : Perception Surveys | Sub Theme : ASB & Liveability Survey

  • DescriptionResponses to the questions which ask about satisfaction with Sandwell Council keeping public land in its control free of litter and refuse; satisfaction with various aspects of the litter picking service; and satisfaction with street and town centre cleanliness.
  • Headline FindingsThe 2009 survey found that most residents find the cleanliness standard in their street and local town centre to be average or better.
    * Satisfaction with borough cleanliness decreases with age to some extent - with those rating services as poor or very poor increasing with age.
    * Residents in Rowley Regis are most likely to be satisfied with the way the Council has kept all open public land clear of litter and refuse.
    * There is wide variation across the towns in terms of the four aspects of borough cleanliness. Wednesbury residents are most likely to rate litter picking services highly, whilst those in Rowley Regis rate street cleanliness highly.
    * Smethwick residents rate their local street cleanliness particularly poorly - and we have also seen that litter and fly-tipping are particular concerns for these residents.
    * West Bromwich residents are most likely to rate the cleanliness standard of their local town centre poorly.

    * The level of concern with environmental issues rises towards middle age, and then falls again - the highest concerns being amongst those aged between 35 and 44.
    * It is people living in Smethwick who are most likely to say litter is a very or fairly big problem. Smethwick residents are also concerned about fly tipping - suggesting that problems with litter need to be addressed in the town. This was also the case in 2008.

Theme : Perception Surveys | Sub Theme : ASB & Liveability Survey

  • DescriptionResponses to the questions which ask about satisfaction with the local area as a place to live; whether the neighbourhood has got better or worse in the last 12 months; whether people of different backgrounds get on well in the area; safety outside in daylight or after dark; and reasons why people don't go out alone after dark.
  • Headline FindingsThe 2009 survey found that satisfaction with neighbourhoods has fallen since the previous survey, however just over 86% of respondents overall express satisfaction with their local area.
    * Although satisfaction with the town they live in is relatively high across the Borough, Smethwick stands out as a notable exception.
    Around one in seven respondents felt that their neighbourhood had improved in the last twelve months, whilst 26% of residents surveyed felt their neighbourhood had got worse.
    * Those in Tipton and Oldbury are far less likely to think that their neighbourhood has got better over the last twelve months than residents of other towns. Rowley Regis and West Bromwich fair much better on this indicator.
    The majority of residents believe that people from different backgrounds in their neighbourhood get on well together.
    * People living in Oldbury are most likely to feel that people from different backgrounds in their neighbourhood get on well together.
    Around 90% of respondents told us that they feel safe walking in their neighbourhood during daylight.
    * Of all the towns, people in West Bromwich feel the least safe walking alone in their neighbourhood when it's dark, with only 44% of respondents saying they feel very or fairly safe. This compares with just over 48% in Wednesbury and Rowley Regis. This variation is not as wide as in past years.
    * Two out of five of people who don't walk alone after dark, said it was because they were too scared to go out.
    * Smethwick residents were most likely to say they don't go out alone at night because they are too scared to. West Bromwich residents are least likely to need to go out.

  • DescriptionResponses to the questions which ask if respondents are satisfied with efforts to tackle ASB in Sandwell, and if they are aware of various ASB services in the Borough.
  • Headline FindingsThe 2009 survey found that around 60% of residents are satisfied with the Council, Police & other organisations' efforts to tackle anti-social behaviour, compared to 61% in the September 2008 survey.
    * These satisfaction levels are closely linked to how well informed people feel about our efforts to tackle ASB. Around 90% of those respondents who feel very or fairly well informed are satisfied with organisations' efforts to tackle ASB in Sandwell. This compares with only 39% of those who say they are not very well informed, and 23% who are not well informed at all.
    * Over 60% of Wednesbury and Rowley Regis residents are satisfied with our efforts to tackle anti-social behaviour, whilst those in Smethwick are least satisfied.
    * With the exception of Drug Concern and the Warden Service, people living in Smethwick are least likely to have heard of the ASB services provided in the borough, which perhaps explains the relatively low levels of satisfaction with our efforts in this area.

Theme : Perception Surveys | Sub Theme : Place Survey

  • DescriptionQ8 Sandwell Council is also a key provider of public services locally, so we would like your views on some of the services it provides. How satisfied or dissatisfied are you with each of the following services provided or supported by Sandwell Council?
  • Headline FindingsSatisfaction with culture and recreation services is mixed. Residents are most satisfied with the library service (67%) followed by parks and open spaces (55%), and dissatisfaction with both of these services is relatively low. In contrast, opinion is more divided on council run sports and leisure facilities and museums/galleries (net scores of +6 and +2 percentage points respectively), and is overall negative on theatres/concert halls (-17 net satisfied).
    Satisfaction with environmental services is generally positive, with the majority of residents expressing satisfaction with their refuse collection (78%), doorstep recycling (66%) and local tips (67%). The notable exception is keeping land clear of litter and refuse, where opinion is divided - 40% are satisfied and 41% dissatisfied giving an overall net dissatisfied score of -1.
    In terms of local transport Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council performs well. Overall, the majority are satisfied with both local bus services and local transport information (65% and 55% respectively).
    Service users are generally more satisfied with services, and with the council itself, than non service users. This is consistently the case in Sandwell.

  • DescriptionQ11 And now taking everything into account, how satisfied or dissatisfied are you with the way Sandwell Council runs things? Tick one box only: Very satisfied / Fairly Satisfied / Neither satisfied or dissatisfied / Fairly dissatisfied / Very dissatisfied / Donít know
  • Headline FindingsBV3 (overall satisfaction with the way the Council runs things) continues to decline - 53.2% in 2000, to 44% in 2006 and 38% in 2008 - although this is part of a continuing national trend [satisfaction levels did increase considerably in the 2003/04 survey, but this was due largely to a change in survey methodology in Sandwell for this wave of the LGUSS]. Net satisfaction also declined from 21% in 2006 to 3% in 2008 - meaning that on balance only slightly more people are satisfied with the way we run things than dissatisfied.
    * Among the main sub-groups, the patterns are broadly similar to those seen elsewhere, with men (40%) and younger residents (44% of 18-34 year olds) most likely to express dissatisfaction. Related to this those in full-time employment (40%) are also more dissatisfied. Other dissatisfied groups include BME residents (44%) and those living in their own homes (37%).
    * Among the towns within the Sandwell area, residents in West Bromwich (41%) are more likely to be dissatisfied with the council, in contrast to those living in OIdbury (26%).

    * The figure for West Bromwich is more than double this at -34%.
    * As with attitudes towards the Council generally, it is men (48%), younger residents (54% of 18-34 year olds) and full-time workers (51%) along with those who own their home (45%) who are most likely to disagree that it provides good value for money.

Theme : Quality of Life

  • DescriptionExperian have used their groups and types classifcation to make inferences about over 900 behaviours, attitudes and demographic factors in the form of an index score for characteristics against each household group and type. Data returned here shows the Ďnet scoreí of an area Ė this is the number of postcodes within that area that are significantly higher than the national average, minus the number that are significantly lower. This therefore shows the predicted propensity of a characteristic within an area Ė the higher the number, the more likely it is that households within that area have the characteristic being displayed. The chart next to the map shows this net value and also the number of postcodes within that area that are significantly higher than the national average (referred to as 'Greater than') and the number that are significantly lower (referred to as 'Less than').
  • Headline FindingsThis provides the data which underlies the Mosaic classification of households, and shows the predicted propensity of a characteristic within an area.  Below are some selected results:
    * At ward level, only Abbey has a higher than average proportion of people who are likely to be educated to university degree or higher, compared with the national average.
    * The most deprived ward in Sandwell (Soho & Victoria) has the highest proportion of people who describe themselves as being very worried about being attacked due to their skin colour.
    * Compared to the national average, there is a significantly low proportion of people who read broadsheet newspapers such as The Times, Daily Telegraph, The Guardian etc, whilst the readership of tabloid newspapers such as The Sun, Daily Mirror and the Daily Star is high.

Theme : Deprivation & Income

  • DescriptionThe proportion of children living in families in receipt of out of work benefits or tax credits where their reported income is less than 60% median income.
  • Headline Findings• Child Poverty in Sandwell decreased 1.3% between 2010 and 2011, from 30.4% to 29.6%. The borough still ranks in 3rd place in the WM Met County for child poverty, after Birmingham and Wolverhampton.
    • The gap with the national and regional averages has also reduced slightly to 9.5% and 6.9% respectively.
    • Sandwell is now in a slightly better position (-0.8%) regarding proportions of child poverty as it was in 2006 when the indicator first started being recorded (30.4%). Birmingham is the neighbouring authority with the most significant decrease in child poverty in the past 6 years (-3.4%), whereas Solihull, Walsall and Wolverhampton have increased in the same period.
    • However, and partly due to the demographic boom of the past decade, the number of children in relative poverty in the borough is now higher than it was 6 years ago, at 22,935.

Theme : Perception Surveys | Sub Theme : My Council

  • DescriptionResults of the annual "My Council" reputation roadshow. This section relates to the questions on satisfaction with various council services.
  • Headline FindingsSatisfaction with council services varies. Around two thirds of respondents are satisfied with waste and recycling collections and bin collections, something which increases with age. Satisfaction with the cleanliness of streets was lower at 41%. Whilst lots of people said the parks and open spaces were one of the things they liked about Sandwell, and many people mentioned the recent improvements in parks, when asked how satisfied they were with parks and open spaces just over half (53%) of respondents said they were satisfied. 62% of respondents are satisfied with libraries, a proportion which increases with age. Conversely, satisfaction with sports and leisure services, which now stands at 47%, decreases with age. These levels of satisfaction are likely to be influenced by whether or not respondents use the service, with users likely to have a higher level of satisfaction compared to non users. Two services in particular stand out because they have a negative net satisfaction score i.e. more people are dissatisfied with the service than satisfied. These services are the removal of dog fouling (-13% net satisfaction) and highways maintenance (potholes) (-24% net satisfaction).
