Mapping Social Cohesion 2020: The Scanlon Foundation Surveys Report

The widely-reported Scanlon-Monash Index of Social Cohesion (SMI) shows how Australia ranks according to five key indicators of social cohesion - belonging, worth, social justice, participation and acceptance - and tracks how they have been changing over time. The thirteen iteration of the survey, in 2020, includes in-depth discussion of public opinion on social cohesion, trust, immigration, asylum seekers, and ethnic, cultural and religious diversity.
