Vital Signs 2008 operated as a community check-up conducted by The Foundation that measured the vitality of our community. It also identified significant trends, and assigned grades in 11 areas critical to quality of life.
The grading survey was completed online and with close to 600 respondents completing the survey, we believe it is a meaningful representation of people’s opinions. The graders were asked to evaluate each indicator based on the following scale:
A: Oakville is doing great! Keep up the good work.
B: We’re doing well, but we still have some improvements to make.
C: Satisfactory, but there is a need for more attention to this issue.
D: It’s a concern, and we need to do something about it right away.
F: We’re doing very poorly, and the situation is critical.
