Commentary
How it Works: RSR ROBBINS AMERICA (Province of British Columbia) asked homeowners in the Canadian province of British Columbia a series of questions referred to as Points of Inquiry (“PI”). These homeowners reside in larger cities like Vancouver City (over 600k) and smaller towns like White Rock and Port Moody/Anmore/Belcarra (30k).
Homeowners are asked to give their impressions as “mostly positive” or “mostly negative” on a host of subject matter relevant to them as homeowners (and tax payers to the City). This subject matter: affordable and varied housing, crime, economy, shopping, parks, police, traffic and ‘City beautification’- {our favorite, because it finishes the interview on a ‘mostly positive’ note}, serve as the ingredients for scoring, ranking, & finishing with a % and Letter Grade.
(1) Does your city have sufficient & varied housing-including affordable housing/homes affordable for young people to purchase? (2) Does your city have low crime rate? (3)Does your city represent a strong economy? (4) Does your city possess have good and varied shopping including farmer’s markets? (5)Does your city possess many good parks – as well as an abundance of amenities? (6)What about your police force...attitude of, perception? What is your knowledge, perception or impression of police attitudes in your city or town (related to ? (7)What about traffic flow-traffic congestion-alternative transportation? (8)City ‘beautification’? Is your City beautiful? Does your City work hard to be a beautiful place to live?
There are two Parts of investigation in this RSR Study, “A” & “B”.
In Part A, a percentage for net ‘mostly positive’ and net ‘mostly negative’ response choices are offered and determined for each city & town participating. Another percentage is thereafter determined for the ‘Decided’ percentile produced following removal of ‘Undecided’ from the original calculation.
A moderately high most positive ‘net mostly positive’ attracting a high Undecided, will produce a DMP that is much more positive, or alternatively a DMN commensurately more negative.
*For instance, affordable & varied housing does poorly all across (nearly) every City & Town, the Decided percentile is expressed as ‘Decided Mostly Negative’ or ‘DMN’.
Where a ‘DMN’ occurs, a score of (50%) is advanced to the eventual total scoring of all Points of Inquiry, and up to (14%) thereafter may be deducted from the initial sum of the 8 Points of Inquiry (the 1st sum) to accommodate both the penalty and to aid in ensuring reasonable ‘fairness’.
The 1st sum is then divided by 8 (the eight Points of Inquiry ((‘the 8 points’)).
Although City ‘beautification’ is one line of inquiry of many, it also receives (62%) Influence on Outcome @ Part A.
A Bonus Percentage (“BP”) is available for any City or Town who hit certain higher percentiles on City ‘beautification’. So City ‘beautification’ is one of 8 Points of Inquiry.
*If you think about it, if a respondent homeowner claims ‘mostly negative’ in 5 of the 8 Points of Inquiry, (as occurs) and then screams to the rafters what a beautiful city his/her’s is,– doesn’t this make ‘City beautification’ an Element of Inquiry (ei) most deserved of extraordinary influence (ie {french})?
Larger Cities are given preferential treatment at final score processing and receive a Bonus Grant (“BG”) increasing (FS) at Part A. This is a supposition on my/our part that this should be so. It is integral to outcomes.
Smaller Cities & Towns receive no ‘BG’. Cities & Towns are BG’d relative to size as noted in information per City & Town. Greater Vancouver & Surrey have the largest pops. followed by Greater Victoria then Burnaby, than a bunch of over 125,000 size cities.
Smaller Cities scored very well overall even without any ‘BG’. For example, Penticton came in 4th, the City of White Rock (6th).
Two of the larger Cities scored in the Top 5: Burnaby (2nd), Greater Victoria (3rd).
In some calculations and in some circumstances, where percentiles are equivalent, Larger Cities (“LC”) are ranked at higher placement throughout ranking internal to each point of Inquiry than smaller Towns (“T”). This determination can grind away eventual scores and ranking, as the ranking per each 8 Point of Inquiry - our effort to see which Cities & Towns ultimately make the grade.
It is the ‘RSR City beautification’ that really carries the day for some pretty good scores all ‘round.
Some will ask – how did we decide where to place thresholds. Frankly, we realized that about (13%) of homeowners were ‘mostly negative’ on half or more of the criteria…critical...but would sometimes rate their ‘City beautification’ as ‘mostly positive’ about (70%) of the time.
We also knew from our public opinion polls that ‘mostly positive’ and ‘mostly negative’ reflected the best linguistic approach as opposed to more common words like “approve” & “disapprove”.
Let’s deal with language for a moment. The word “mostly” is an adverb (a word that describes or modifies a verb, an adjective or another adverb).
The words “positive” and “negative” can be an adjective (a word or phrase naming an attribute) and be related to a noun, or they are the noun. In relation to the word ‘mostly’, because ‘mostly’ precedes both “positive” & “negative”, and “positive” & “negative” cannot thus properly perform the duties of the adjective, we must conclude that they are nouns.
“(P)ositive” as a noun then represents a good, affirmative or constructive quality…the latter inferring a more workmanlike quality. As a noun “(N)egative” means reject, refuse to accept, veto or neutralize.
Linguistically the subject “person”, “place” or “thing” must reach a higher threshold to be negative.
We make our point in Beautiful B.C. Cities & Towns about the use of language in response choices one sees in most mainstream public opinion polls, always in relation to a person, place or thing (noun). Yet the most common words “approve” or “disapprove” have NO jurisdiction as a noun .
Approve is “accepting” {as} ‘satisfactory’, while (D)isapprove suggests an unfavourable opinion about something.
The word “satisfactory” is an adjective, representing “acceptable” more similar to “mostly positive”, but not its equal because neither “approve” nor “satisfactory” have nouns attached to them as do “positive” or “negative”. It is easier from the math of the language to see that “disapprove” rises to a lower threshold than “mostly” negative.
A person place or thing ought to be given a reasonable opportunity to be a positive noun, rather than invited to be a little negative noun modifier (sarcasm with Emphasis).
Accordingly, I believe that ultimately the most positive and most negative response choice is the ‘Cadillac’ option.
Back to Beautiful B.C. Cities & Towns
In my Part B, I create a ranking of scores used in Part A between each British Columbia City & Town.(1st, 2nd, third and so on..). (Often three or four Cities or Towns will have a tie score, they will be usually designated the same placement in Part A, and in almost every case in Part B).
These scores are than tallied up for each of the 8 inquiries and divided. Our 1st place overall finisher, Langley City/Langley Township, scored as follows: (5th, 4th, 8th, 2nd, 5th, 12th, 14th, & 3rd) = 6.6 (3rd place Part B); whereas much lower place finisher #18 (City of Vancouver) scored as follows: (23th, 21st, 21st, 1st, 4th, 15th, 23rd) =15.8 in Part B.
This number ({6.6} or {15.8}) or (#5) Kelowna: (22nd, 10th, 7th, 7th, 1st, 8th, 10th, 11th) =9.5; (#4) Penticton: (11th, 6th, 6th, 7th, 1st, 8th, 10th, & 11th) =6.1.. to Coquitlam’s: (12th) (18th, 12th, 18th, 6th, 16th, 20th, 18th, 7th) =14.4; (I)s THEN applied in determining average ranking from each Point of Inquiry and subsequently totaled, and then ranked.
This ranking process is undertaken to produce a Part B Score, which is then averaged with Part A Score.
In Langley Township’s case their Part A + Part B produced a (3.8) average. We then deduct this number from [100%] to produce a % ( in this case (96.2%)), which is then averaged with Final Score from Part A to produce an End Score Letter Grade (ESLG). In Langley Township’s case an ESLG of (85.1), and the only “A” in class (85+).

It our prior Best Places to Live in Vancouver (really the Lower Mainland of B.C.) circa (2008) & (2013)many of the Cities & Towns are the same making it possible to compare over time (2008-2017).
The July 2008 scored as follows: 1 West Vancouver; 2 White Rock/South Surrey; 3 Richmond 4 North Vancouver; 5 Burnaby; 6 Port Moody; 7 Surrey; 8 New Westminster; 9 Port Coquitlam; 10 Coquitlam; 11 Langley 12 Vancouver (City).
Our 2013 Survey scored as follows (on "Satisfaction"): 1 White Rock (80%), 2 South Surrey (79%), 3 Whistler (79%), 4 Langley Township (78%), 5 West Vancouver (77%), 6 Port Moody (76%), 7 Coquitlam (74%), 8 Langley City (74%), 9 North Shore Vancouver (73%), 10 Burnaby (73%), 11 Richmond (73%), 12 New Westminster (72%), 13 Delta (70%), Port Coquitlam (70%), Surrey (excluding S. Surrey) (69%).
In this RSR ROBBINS AMERICA (Province of British Columbia)Survey many of the Cities & Towns are the same ones in the 2008 & 2013 Survey(s), except now we have added Cities & Towns from Vancouver Island including Greater Victoria & Nanaimo.
We have also added B.C. Cities & Towns from BC's fabulous 'Okanagan' (Penticton, Kelowna, Vernon, & Kamloops) & 'North' (Prince George).
Lastly, our scoring method is different.
It is clear that new Cities & Towns added have had an impression with Penticton & Kelowna scoring in the Top 5 and Vernon in the Top 10 (Okanagan) & Greater Victoria scoring (3rd).
Readers might note that South Surrey (2nd 2013), (part of Surrey City, right next door to White Rock (1st 2013),{and next to U.S. border on the Pacific Ocean}has been given back to Greater Surrey for 2017. There is no Whistler (3rd 2013) data (nearest West Vancouver Vancouver (5th 2013), Langley Township (4th 2013) & Langley City (8th 2013), North Shore is North Vancouver City (District) and Delta is not included. Anmore (not part of Port Moody legally but next door) & Belcarra are included by name for 2017.
