Seven out of 10 Scots want to banish prejudice


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).
