Surrey County Residents Survey

Best Practices:
  • Excellent display of survey data
  • Nice inclusion of how the net satisfaction score (NSS) was calculated
  • Sparklines show the overall trend for each question
  • Good use of color for the stacked bars
  • Nice padding on the ends of the stacked bars to allow room for the NSS circles
  • Background color matches the Surrey logo
  • Neatly organized overall
  • Nice interactivity and filtering
Recommended Enhancements:
  • More clearly indicate that the bars and NSS represent the latest data
  • Include a dot on the ends of each sparkline and indicate whether it's better or worse than the previous quarter
  • Would a green background on the charts work better than the white? It might be less distracting.
  • Include all of the response types in each tooltip along with the NSS
