The participants of the Deliberative Forums were selected randomly using a stratified sampling approach. We applied quotas to obtain a representative sample of our community.
A total of 135 people participated in two forums, one in Maitland and one in Newcastle, giving us their views and values on water and water services through several and engaging exercises.
