Social attitudes and behaviour - Society and culture
|The Northern Ireland Life and Times Survey (NILT) series began in 1998, and was the successor to the previous Northern Ireland Social Attitudes series, (held at the UK Data Archive under SN 33235), which was discontinued in 1996. The aims of the NILT series are:
NILT originally had a companion series which also began in 1998, the Young Life and Times Survey (YLT) (see under SN 33313), although the YLT methodology changed in 2003. NILT also forms part of the International Social Survey Programme (ISSP), although it does not do so every year. Unfortunately, the NILT team were unable to obtain full funding to run NILT in 2011, though YLT ran as normal that year. NILT resumed in 2012 - see SN 7408. In addition, two open access teaching datasets were created from NILT 2012, one covering Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) issues and the other covering politics and good relations (see SNs 7546 and 7547 respectively).
- to monitor public attitudes towards social policy and political issues in Northern Ireland
- to provide a time series on attitudes to key social policy areas
- to facilitate academic social policy analysis
- to provide a freely available resource on public attitudes for the wider community of users in Northern Ireland
Further information about the NILT series may be found on the ARK (Access Research Knowledge) NILT webpages.
The 2007 NILT survey covered:
- community relations
- attitudes to minority ethnic people and migrant workers
