According to the 2015 survey, more affluent residents of Hackney are more likely to be satisfied with the local area as a place to live than those in lower social grades (see Figure 5).2 Similarly, residents from a higher social grade are more likely to think that the area has improved over the past five years than those in a lower social grade. Feelings of social isolation are also more common among less affluent members of the local community.
