In 2017, Angered is the district of Gothenburg with the least educated population aged 25-64, about 12-13% of the population has a post-secondary education of three years or more. About 30% of pupils have not completed primary education and so are not eligible to attend secondary school. About half the population is unemployed. Inhabitants in Angered have low levels of trust, about half state they do not have trust in other people. Inhabitants in the area are unwilling to take part in judicial processes and social services, police, public officials and businesses have difficulties performing their functions in the area. Criminal gangs sell narcotics openly in schools and gang related violence occur openly in public spaces and is directed also towards non gang members as well as rival gangs.
In July 2018 the camera surveillance in the area was intensified as police had problems getting terrified witnesses to testify in court trials. The intensification also comprised Gothenburg Biskopsgården and Bergsjön.

Angered is served by bus lines 40 and 71-77 and a number of tram lines. The tram service terminates here, with the turning slope running around the bus terminal. The tram lines serving Angered are 4, 8 and 9 (towards Mölndal, Frölunda and Kungssten). Initially, the tram line was due to run past Angered Centrum, terminating at Rannebergen, not far from the centre. This project was abandoned while under construction, and bus line 76 runs from Angered Centrum to Rannebergen instead. However, there is space for trams inside the hill, just as at Hammarkullen. The next station southwards is Storås.
