|Headline Summary||53% of respondents feel they belong to their immediate neighbourhood (NI 2), although most of these say fairly rather than very strongly (42% and 11% respectively). Again, this is lower than the Metropolitan/Unitary average and England as a whole (57% and 59% respectively).
* Those in Tipton are most likely to feel strongly that they belong to their local area.
* Age appears as a strong influence on community cohesion, with those aged 55 or over significantly more attached to their immediate neighbourhood (69% compared with 53% overall).
