provide, for the first time, an attitudinal survey 'locked into' a specific general election
to compare social attitudes in Northern Ireland and Britain.
Main Topics:
Key topics covered in this study were: the social bases of political allegiance in Northern Ireland; the persisting importance of religious affiliation in Northern Ireland politics; the development of a loyalism-nationalism Likert scale; the continuities and changes in the evolution of self-perceived national identity 1968-1992; the territorial and local aspects of political interest, voting and party preference, the campaign issues and ideologies.
