To answer this question, The School of Public Policy partnered with the Canadian Municipal Election Study (CMES) to ask Calgarians a series of questions about the economy. The survey was carried out by Forum Research between November 14 and December 13, 2018, and included 748 individuals who completed both the 2017 CMES survey and the 2018 Calgary Year in Review Survey. Each of the two surveys included an identical set of questions about the economy, providing a valuable look at how opinions about the local economy have changed in Calgary over time.
