Oxford Community Wellbeing Survey

Residents living in rural areas report a greater degree of life satisfaction and wellbeing, according to the 2016 Oxford County Community Wellbeing Survey. On the other hand, Oxford’s most dissatisfied residents are those who earn less than $40,000 a year, a group more likely to report they are dissatisfied with work, less likely to take part in community activities, and that count a lower numbers of close friends.

Future Oxford is working through Community Oxford to set-- and achieve-- targets and goals that improve quality of life for all.
