PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Phoenix is a good city in which to live - at least according to nine of 10 residents.

A survey recently released by the city administration shows 93 percent of residents rate Phoenix as a good place to live, the highest in the survey's history.

The 2012 survey, done by a private research company, was first conducted in 1985 and is conducted every two years. The survey has residents rate city services on a scale of 1 to 10. 

The 2012 survey was compared to the 2002 survey, which showed that approval ratings of 20 out of the 26 services surveyed increased over the 10 years. Those services are:

  • Police protection
  • Enforcing traffic laws
  • Emergency medical services
  • Garbage and recycling
  • Property maintenance
  • Fire protection
  • Countering gang activities
  • Parks and recreation programs
  • Preserving neighborhoods
  • Elderly services
  • Uncontained trash
  • Preserving mountains and deserts
  • City bus service
  • Operating wastewater plants
  • Safe drinking water
  • Controlling cut-through traffic
  • Crime prevention efforts
  • Providing youth programs
  • Preventing illegal dumping
  • Poor and homeless services

The survey also showed that in just two years, from 2010 to 2012, city services showed an increase from 83 percent to 87 percent.

The latest survey also asked Phoenix residents what areas need the most improvement. Their top priorities were new employers along with job training and placement.
