Social environment: key data sources
The Scottish Household Survey includes sections on local neighbourhood/community safety, social networks, disputes with neighbours, education & lifelong learning, recycling and volunteering.
The Census includes some data relevant to the social environment (e.g. household composition, social grade, educational qualification).
The General Lifestyle Survey (formerly the General Household Survey) collects information on a range of topics from people living in private households in Great Britain including employment, education and more recently, social capital.
Statistics.gov.scot (which has replaced the Scottish Neighbourhood Statistics website) includes some data on social environment related topics.
Note also that some social environment related data (e.g. educational attainment, vulnerable households) are included within the Profiles pages.
