  • 91.5% rate parks and recreational facilities as very good or good
  • 84% rate police protection as very good or good

Gwinnett had the highest overall quality of life rating and surpassed the other four counties in eight other areas, including local schools, drainage and flood control, trash and litter control, and road maintenance.
