LEVELS OF TRUST AND ACCEPTANCE
The 2010 GSS also assessed the levels of trust that respondents have in other people, including people in general and people associated with particular occupations and institutions. While 54% of people aged 18 years or over felt that 'most people' could be trusted, they were more likely to trust their doctor (89%), local police (75%) and hospitals (73%). The level of trust in hospitals had increased slightly from 69% in 2006 (table 25).
In 2010, (80%) adults agreed or strongly agreed with the statement that 'It is a good thing for a society to be made up of people from different cultures.'
