Urban Audit is a European Commission sponsored project to provide comparable data on urban areas. The 2012 Perception Survey, complementary to the quantitative data, interviewed people in 79 cities (of which 6 are in the UK), asking what they think about many issues, including their city’s built environment, cultural facilities, pollution, and safety. This article looks at data for cities to assess how typical or otherwise perceptions in UK cities are compared with other European cities.
