pp 161. The research encompassed three phases between 2010 and 2011: (1) an extensive literature
review on QOL, (2) 24 focus groups that asked Minnesota’s citizens about their QOL, and (3) a
mail questionnaire about what matters in quality of life, transportation and their intersection.
Results reveal: QOL is complex and transportation plays an important and consistent role in it
across Minnesota; transportation is critical to QOL because it connects us to important
destinations in aspects that matter most; and Minnesotans can readily identify what matters and
how the state is performing within the breadth of transportation services.
