Citizenship Survey: April 2010-March 2011
National Statistics from the Citizenship Survey produced by Communities and Local Government were released on 22 September 2011.
The release includes data covering a range of issues including influencing decisions, volunteering, community cohesion, fear of crime, racial and religious prejudice, discrimination and attitudes toward violent extremism.
The latest statistics report on the 2010-11 survey (all four quarters of the 2010-11 survey, from April 2010 to March 2011), and update those statistics released on 14 April 2011.
Some of the key statistics from the release are:
- In 2010-11, 86 per cent of people thought their community was cohesive, agreeing that their local area was a place where people from different backgrounds got on well together. The level was higher than all previous years.
- Seventy-seven per cent of people thought that the number of immigrants coming to Britain should be reduced; whilst three per cent thought the number should be increased.
- In 2010-11, 7 per cent of adults in England felt racial or religious harassment was a ‘very’ or ‘fairly’ big problem in their local area. People from ethnic minority backgrounds were more likely than white people to feel that racial or religious harassment was a ‘very’ or ‘fairly’ big problem (13 per cent compared with 6 per cent).
