About the research

This report presents the findings of the latest Scanlon Foundation Mapping Social Cohesion national surveys. The report builds on the knowledge gained through the fourteen earlier national surveys (2007, 2009-20).

2021 marks the 15th Mapping Social Cohesion survey, and the third during the pandemic, revealing the character of our country as we live through a prolonged crisis. This year, additional products are added to our research program, including the Australian Cohesion Index and the Life in the Pandemic qualitative research.
