Macau Quality of Life Reports (2007 to 2012)

The Macau Quality of Life Report Project was commissioned by the deFicção Projectos Multimédia (owner of Macau Business magazine) to Lotus Consultants, the Consulting arm of the University of Saint Joseph. From 2007 to 2012 a total of twelve surveys were conducted with the support of the Macau Foundation, Wynn Resorts and the Orient Foundation. The Macau Quality of Life Report project was led by Prof. Richard Whitfield, as CEO of Lotus Consultants at the time, which involved also Dr. Ricardo Rato and Mr. Michael Lio as researchers and Ms. Jeannie Lam providing administrative support. All the data were collected via telephone interviews. 376 valid responses were gathered for the first survey, and 1000+ for each of the subsequent surveys (from a Macau population of around 300,000 adults), where the interviewers were thoroughly trained and closely monitored students from the University of Saint Joseph.
