The 2010 GSS collected information about people's perceptions of social disorder problems such as noisy driving, public drunkeness and so on in their local area. 70% of people reported at least one type of social disorder problem in their local area (table 2). Both men and women were likely to report social disorder problems at about the same rates, and people in younger age groups were much more likely to report these problems than were older people (see graph 6.2)
