Celebrating 20 Years of ARK Life and Times Surveys: Recording Social Attitudes and Informing Social Policy in Northern Ireland
The Northern Ireland Life and Times Survey began in 1998 and focuses on the opinion of adults. In 2003, Young Life and Times began monitoring the attitudes of 16 year olds, whilst Kids’ Life and Times started recording the opinion of 10-11 year olds in 2008. These data provide authoritative, independent and statistically-robust evidence which is freely accessible to everyone.
At this event, we will celebrate the wealth of data provided by the surveys. We will also launch a publication which outlines public attitudes over time to key social issues, and highlights the major contribution that the surveys have provided to policy making in Northern Ireland.
