Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.The main aim of this project was to see how well post-devolution Scotland is succeeding in accommodating both nationalism and multiculturalism at the same time. A further and more specific objective was to increase understanding of ethnic minority perspectives on post-devolution Scotland.
The study covers minority perspectives on nationalism and multiculturalism in post-devolution Scotland, in particular:
This mixed methods data collection consists of:
A set of special questions for this project were also fielded in the Scottish Social Attitudes, 2003 (SSA) and British Social Attitudes, 2003 (BSA) studies (held at the UK Data Archive (UKDA) under SNs 5076 and 5235 respectively). Data from these questions have not been included separately here, but users are advised to order SNs 5076 and 5235 in addition to this dataset to obtain the SSA/BSA data.
A full description of the data and account of the project appears in Hussain, A.M. and Miller, W.L. (2006) Multicultural nationalism: Islamophobia, Anglophobia and devolution, Oxford: Oxford University Press. This publication should always be cited when the data are used.

|Dates of fieldwork:||Focus group interviews with ethnic Pakistanis were conducted between 3 September 2002 and 7 January 2003, the English immigrant focus group interviews were conducted between 9 January and 12 March 2003, and the telephone survey took place between July 2003 and January 2004.|

|Kind of data:||
Individual (micro) level
English immigrants (born in England and living in Scotland) plus numerous persons living in households containing an English immigrant, and ethnic Pakistanis (by self-definition) resident in Scotland, plus a very few persons living in a household containing an ethnic Pakistani (not enough for analysis). The interviews were carried out in areas where the particular minority were known, from the Census 2001 to be especially numerous. For confidentiality reasons the exact locations of the focus groups have not been disclosed.

The SSA 2003 and BSA 2003 are part of repeated cross-sectional series.
English immigrants: random sampling of phone numbers in areas where Census 2001 indicated high levels, then selection by filtering questions.
Ethnic Pakistanis: sampling of Pakistani names from phone directories in similar high level areas, then selection by filtering questions.
|Number of units:||751 English immigrants, 759 ethnic Pakistanis, 12 focus group discussions|
|Method of data collection:||
Face-to-face interview; Telephone interview; Transcription of existing materials
|Weighting:||No weighting used, but for analysis purposes the data may be weighted to age x gender statistics from the Census 2001.|
