This report aims to assess the level and pattern of community cohesion in Great Britain. It approaches the topic from three perspectives: attitudes to the local community; objective indicators of community involvement; and social mixing. It also explores the main drivers of community cohesion. It uses findings from analysis of new questions placed on the March 2017 NatCen Panel survey, and new analysis of the 2016/17 Community Life survey.
