This research studied the level of overall satisfaction among Al wagan population as far as their community is concerned (Al wagan is about 228 Kilos from the capital Abu Dabi). It answered some questions, such as, what are the major characteristics of the Al wagan community? What are the socio-economic services available in the community? What type of social relationships exists in the community? And how good is the overall standard of living found in the community, and finally how Al wagan is a sustainable community?
This research is considered as a pilot research that gathered its information through more than one method. With participation of the local Municipality, A well trained team assisted in data collection using a well-prepared questionnaire.
