London crowd
Published: June 2019

A new study designed to provide a robust, up-to-date and representative evidence base on key issues for Greater London Authority’s social integration and wider social policy agendas.

Aim

The Survey of Londoners is a new study designed to provide a robust, up-to-date and representative evidence base on key issues for Greater London Authority’s social integration and wider social policy agendas.

Findings

Social integration

  • Most Londoners feel a sense of belonging to London (81%).
  • Three in four Londoners feel a sense of belonging to their local area (74%).
  • 60% of Londoners report a high personal well-being, although it is closely associated with economic advantage

Relationships

  • 8% of Londoners often or always feel lonely
  • Three in four Londoners agree that their local area is a place where people from different backgrounds get on well together (75%)

Participation

  • Half of Londoners have been involved in informal volunteering over the past year (52%)
  • Three in ten have been involved in formal volunteering (28%)

Equalities

  • Around a third of Londoners feel they have been treated unfairly in the last 12 months because of one or several protected characteristics or because of their social class (35%)

Economic fairness

  • 54% of Londoners think that it is a fair city, but 35% think it is not fair

Food security

  • Around one in five adults in London have low or very low food security (21%). Of these, 60% are in work

Methodology

The Survey of Londoners is a web-first survey of 6,601 Londoners aged 16+ using a stratified random probability design. It was designed to encourage participants to complete the survey online, but offered paper self-completion surveys to all non-responding households to maximise response and sample quality.
