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.'
