ARK SURVEYS

Introduction

ARK runs a suite of annual attitudinal surveys that aim to provide time-series attitudinal data across age groups to inform policy development.

  • Northern Ireland Life and Times Survey
    The Northern Ireland Life and Times Survey (NILT) is an annual survey monitoring the attitudes of people in Northern Ireland to a wide range of social and political issues. In this section you can look at the questionnaires for each year’s survey and search across all the results.

  • Young Life and Times Survey
    The Young Life and Times Survey is the sister survey to NILT but is designed to monitor attitudes among young people in Northern Ireland to social and political issues.

  • Kids’ Life and Times Survey
    The Kids’ Life and Times Survey monitors attitudes among children in P7 (10-11 year olds) to issues that affect them

Working in partnership with others we facilitate access to other independent and government surveys.

  • Northern Ireland Household Panel Survey
    The Northern Ireland Household Panel Survey (NIHPS) is an extension of the long-running British Household Panel Survey and is carried out by the Central Survey Unit of the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA). From 2003 to 2010, ARK housed an analysis unit dedicated to facilitating users in their analysis of the NIHPS data.

  • Surveys On Line
    Surveys On-Line provides quick and easy access to a range of social science datasets. Users can view tables of results and/or the questionnaire without having to analyse the full dataset themselves.

  • International Social Survey Programme
    Each year over 44 countries participate in the International Social Survey Programme (ISSP) in which the same module of questions is asked cross-nationally. Northern Ireland has taken part in this exercise since 1989 via the Northern Ireland Social Attitudes Survey (NISA) until 1996, and then more infrequently via the Northern Ireland Life and Times Survey (NILT). This section of the website contains tables of results from a range of British, Irish and Northern Irish surveys.
