In a survey released by the city of Phoenix, more than nine out of 10 residents, or 93 percent, said Phoenix is a good place to live, the highest rating level in the history of the survey.

Since 1985, the city has hired a private research company to conduct a city survey every two years. This year, satisfaction rates for top city services were analyzed, comparing survey results from 2002 to 2012. Satisfaction rates increased over the last 10 years for 20 out of 26 services studied. Overall satisfaction with providing city services also increased from 83 percent in 2010 to 87 percent in 2012.
