Module: Community Relations

This page lists the questions asked within the Community Relations module, and for which years. Clicking on the year printed after every question will bring you to the results for that year. Publications and further information on Community Relations can be found on the Community Relations Resources page.

There are no plans to put tables of results for the questions asked on Social Capital within this module in 2000 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.

Unfortunately, the Northern Ireland Life and Times Survey did not run in 2011 as we were unable to confirm the full package of funding required in time to allow fieldwork to take place.

If you are interested in attitudes to community relations issues since 1989, time-series data are available on Surveys Online.
