Trust in others

Why is this important for social statistics?

Measuring people’s trust in others helps to show how people feel about their community. When people trust those around them, they’re more likely to cooperate and develop good relationships.

This indicator measures the proportion of the population aged 18 years and over who said people can ‘almost always’ or ‘usually’ be trusted.
