Prejudice based on people’s age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity or religion is falling across the board in Scotland. The Scottish Social Attitudes Survey: Attitudes to Discrimination 2015 figures also show:
- Almost 70% of Scots feel everything possible should be done to rid Scotland of prejudice of all kinds.
- Almost 90% of people think a woman who has taken a year off after having a baby is equally deserving of promotion as a woman who has not.
- Almost 50% decrease since 2010 in proportion of people who would be unhappy with a close relative marrying or forming a long term relationship with someone of the same sex (down from 30% in 2010 to 16% in 2015).
