Summary

Social cohesion is understood as the quality of social cooperation and togetherness in a territorially delimited community. The Social Cohesion Radar (SCR) offers an empirical, international comparison of social cohesion in various countries worldwide. The SCR is based on a broad set of indicators drawn from comparative international surveys and other data sources. It breaks down the concept of social cohesion into three domains — social relations, connectedness and focus on the common good. Each of these domains comprises three measurable dimensions: social networks, trust in people, acceptance of diversity, identification, trust in institutions, perception of fairness, solidarity and helpfulness, respect for social rules, and civic participation
