This report presents the findings of the tenth Scanlon Foundation Mapping Social Cohesion national survey, conducted in June‐July 2017. The report builds on the knowledge gained through the nine earlier Scanlon Foundation national surveys (2007, 2009‐2016) which provide, for the first time in Australian social research, a series of detailed surveys on social cohesion, immigration and population issues. Together with the Scanlon Foundation local area and sub‐group surveys, nineteen surveys with over 42,000 respondents have been conducted since 2007. The project also tracks the findings of other Australian and international surveys on immigration and cultural diversity.
The 2017 national survey was conducted from 21 June to 18 July. The survey comprised 77 questions (56 substantive and 21 demographic), including eighteen questions that are used for calculation of the Scanlon‐ Monash Index of Social Cohesion.
