Northern Ireland Life & Times Survey

The Northern Ireland Life and Times Survey was launched as a web-based resource for anyone interested in the social attitudes of people living in Northern Ireland. It was set up by Queen's University, Belfast and Ulster University. The survey takes place annually and aims to record the attitudes, values and beliefs of the people in Northern Ireland on a wide range of social policy issues. Subjects ranging from politics to pensions, education to the environment are covered in the survey. Results of the survey and copies of derivative publications are made available on the internet and the Northern Ireland Life and Times website is one of the core resources within ARK. Life and Times has its roots in the Northern Ireland Social Attitudes Survey, which ran from 1989 to 1996.


This is a regional resource that anyone interested in public opinion in Northern Ireland can use. The datasets provide independent and statistically-robust information.
