This study explores whether cross-level interaction between individual and neighbourhood socioeconomic status (SES) is associated with social trust in the city of Kashiwa, Japan. People of low SES tend to have higher trust in the national government and lower trust in neighbours as residential district SES increases. By contrast, people of high SES have relatively constant levels of both general and local aspects of social trust, despite local district SES. It is found that perceptions of trust among people of low SES are more likely to be influenced by district-level SES than among people of high SES
