Signposts

A survey of the social issues and needs of Calgarians

Signposts is a comprehensive community assessment survey that reports on the social issues and service needs of Calgarians.

The survey was developed in order to provide an accurate picture of what services are needed by Calgarians, where those services are needed, and how Calgary's service needs are changing over time.

Information from the survey will be used by City planners and community organizations to plan effective community programs and services for city residents.

Over 3,000 Calgarians were interviewed by phone. The most recent survey was conducted in 2009, replicating an earlier survey conducted in 2006. Results of the survey are available for Calgary and 15 sub-districts.

The Signposts survey is a joint initiative of The United Way of Calgary and The City of Calgary, Community and Neighbourhood Services.
