Avenue's Best Neighbourhoods Survey will ask you to compare a number of characteristics to determine which are most and least important in making a neighbourhood a great place to live.

You will notice that some characteristics seem to get asked about over and over. This helps our survey partner, Leger, determine the relative importance of the many characteristics. We are sorry about the repetition and thank you for helping us create the most statistically valid data we can.

The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete. Once the survey results are compiled, Leger will use third-party data collected by a variety of groups including the City of Calgary, Statistics Canada, the Calgary Police Service and Walk Score, among others, to rank Calgary neighbourhoods.

If you have any questions, please contact Käthe Lemon, Avenue's editor-in-chief, at klemon@redpointmedia.ca.

Thank you for your time and help.
