Social Integration Headline Measures

Created a year ago, updated 9 months ago

The Mayor is committed to measuring social integration in London. Providing evidence-based analysis of the state of social integration will allow him to shine a light on the whole city.

Accompanying the Social Integration Strategy published in March 2018, the Mayor has published a set of measures tracking social integration in London, that will be updated on a regular basis.

These measures have been selected from existing high-quality datasets, such as large-scale central government surveys, research council surveys, and administrative data.

City Hall has picked these 18 measures to cover the three main parts of social integration (relationships, participation and equality), choosing measures which are robust over time. There are also two broader outcomes – feelings of belonging and the extent to which London is a great place to live – which are effects of good social integration.
