Northern Ireland Life and Times Survey 2000

Module: Community Relations

This page lists the questions asked within the Community Relations module in 2000. Clicking on the variable name before each question will bring you to the tables of results for that question. Publications and further information on Community Relations can be found on the Community Relations Resources page.

Some of these questions were also asked in the Young Life and Times Survey.

There are no plans to put tables of results for the questions asked on Social Capital within this module on the web site, as the data are quite complicated. However, you can look at the questions in the main questionnaire. If you would like to obtain the data, please contact the Helpline.
