Mapping Social Cohesion 2014:
The Scanlon Foundation Surveys Report

This report presents the findings of the seventh Scanlon Foundation Mapping Social Cohesion Survey conducted in 2014. It builds on the knowledge gained through the six earlier Scanlon Foundation surveys conducted in 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013, providing for the first time in Australia a series of detailed surveys on social cohesion and population issues. It includes discussion of public opinion on social cohesion, trust, immigration, asylum seekers, and ethnic, cultural and religious diversity.

In response to the growing concern over national security and the threat of terror on Australian soil, the Scanlon Foundation conducted a snap poll [pdf 1.06MB] in October to measure any change from its 2014 report findings, based on the survey conducted in June-July.
