General social risks are a group of risks that reflect the internal impact on public administration through general social factors.
Such as social inequality, changing public morals, increasing corruption, the presence of internal conflicts, a change in the model of social behavior, weakening state control and others.
These risks affect both the entire internal structure of the elements of the system under study and the associated risks and factors of their occurrence.
General social risks are divided into:
- risk of deterioration of law and order;
- the risk of changing public morals;
- risk of lack of funding for social projects;
- risk of weakening of state control and regulation;
- risk of internal conflicts;
- risk of social inequality;
- the risk of declining education;
- risk of changing patterns of social behaviour;
- risk of corruption;
- other risks related to internal social factors.
Indicators of identification of this risk group are:
- number of offences committed, including corruption;
- the dynamics of changes in social legislation;
- private indicators of education, medicine, pension, social benefits;
- number of registered conflicts, including national-religious ones;
- the scope and structure of funding for social projects;

Ways to evaluate general social risks:
- creating and predicting patterns of social behaviour;

- monitoring of education, pensions, medical care and other social benefits;
