Figure 5 shows the proportion of Hackney residents who are satisfied or dissatisfied with their local area according to local survey data, and how this has changed between 2001 and 2015.  The figure shows that, since 2002, resident satisfaction with the local area has steadily increased (and resident dissatisfaction decreased). In more recent years, these trends have levelled off somewhat, with very similar levels of satisfaction and dissatisfaction observed in 2015 compared with 2013.
