Neighbourhood satisfaction is increasing

In 2019, the majority of adults in Scotland rated their neighbourhood as a very good place to stay.

This increased from 49% in 1999 to 57% in 2019.

In 1999, 58% of adults in the highest income group rated their neighbourhood as a very good place to live. This increased to 66 % in 2019.

For adults in the lowest income group, 46% rated their neighbourhood as a very good place to live in 1999 and this rose to 53% in 2019.

This line graph shows the proportion of adults in the highest and lowest household income groups that rate their neighbourhood as a very or fairly good place to live, from 1999 to 2019. It highlights that more adults in the highest income groups consistently rated their neighbourhood as a very or fairly good place to live.

Adults from rural areas were consistently more likely to rate their neighbourhood as a very good place to live compared to adults in urban areas
