City fathers and the university agree: the quality of life in bamberg is very high. Especially in the warm season, bamberg can score points with its traditional cellars and a mediterranean way of life. The cathedral city also offers an attractive cultural program, for example. A young, dynamic cityscape is created not least by around 13,000 students at the otto friedrich university. With its focus on the humanities and cultural sciences, humanities, social sciences and economics, complemented by applied computer sciences, the university makes a significant contribution to bamberg as a center of education and science. But what do the citizens of bamberg think – about the city’s leisure activities, the housing and job market situation, the integration of foreign residents, the educational opportunities or the impact of the university??
In order to find out how the citizens of bamberg live, what they like best here, what they would do if they were mayor of bamberg and where the shoe pinches, the city of bamberg, in cooperation with the otto-friedrich-university, initiated a citizen survey. 5000 questionnaires will be sent out on 11. September sent to citizens of bamberg. The selection was made according to scientific criteria, as the initiators state in a joint press release.
Setting the course for change
Participation in the survey is voluntary, but the city and university ask for active participation. Why? A high response rate is required for a representative survey. That is why it is very important that as many as possible of the selected citizens participate. This is the only way for the city to have a data basis that will enable it to make important decisions or initiate necessary changes in the future.
The questionnaire was developed on behalf of the city of bamberg by members of the department of statistics and econometrics at the ottofriedrich university of bamberg. The data it generates will be expanded and updated in the coming years. However, the survey is already the most comprehensive citizen survey ever conducted in bamberg.
The survey is also made available online by the bamberg center for empirical studies (BACES) at the university of bamberg and can be accessed directly at http://online.Baces.Uni-bamberg.De/uc/babb2017 will be retrieved. Surveys completed on the paper questionnaire sent by mail should be sent in the enclosed return envelope to the address indicated on it by the end of september at the latest. The survey is completely anonymous.
