San Diego Quality of Life Is on Rise: Survey

A look at 13 indicators reveals positive trends in environmental and economic health for people living in and around San Diego

San Diego's quality of life is on the rise, according to a new survey.

The report by Equinox Center examined 13 economic and environmental indicators in San Diego, including air quality, economic prosperity and water consumption.

For the first time, the study also tracked electric vehicle ownership.

In most categories, San Diego has shown positive trends in economic and environmental health.

However, Lani Lutar, Executive Director of Equinox Center, said there is one area, we need to improve on.

"Unfortunately in the region what we're seeing is an increased use of water and this is not good news especially when we're in a time of drought," Lutar said.

Some 32 local, state and national agencies were consulted to collect and analyze the data.
