Aspen survey says residents are happy

ASPEN ” Life here in Aspen is pretty damn good.

That’s according to the city of Aspen’s 2007 annual citizen survey, in which the majority of respondents ” 61 percent ” said the quality of life here is excellent.

Aspen ranked above the norm in that the majority rated overall quality of life as excellent or good. The majority of respondents reported they were satisfied or somewhat satisfied with overall city services, again ranking Aspen above the national norm, according to researchers.

All registered voters in Aspen were eligible to take the survey. A random sample of 1,100 individuals were selected from the list of active voters ” those who had voted in the May 2007 election. And 100 were taken from the recently inactive voters, those who had not voted in the May 2007 election but had voted in the election prior to that.
