Over the last eight years, New Orleans voters have been more satisfied with life in the city than in previous years, according to the 2018 Quality of Life Survey conducted by the University of New Orleans Survey Research Center. The survey, also known as the UNO Poll, found that while Orleans Parish residents consider crime to be the biggest problem facing the parish, they are much less likely to report that than they did two years ago.
The survey of 500 Orleans Parish voters and 500 Jefferson Parish voters took place from October 17 to November 5, 2018. There is a margin of error of plus-or-minus 4.4 percent.
