Social Attitudes in Northern Ireland: The Ninth Report
Edited by Katrina Lloyd, Paula Devine, Ann Marie Gray and Deirdre Heenan
Published in 2004 by Pluto Press, London
ISBN: 0 7453 2156 9 Hardback

This book is an essential resource on attitudes to social and political issues in contemporary Northern Ireland. Within this report, an authoritative group of academics and those involved in informing policy-making within the community summarise and interpret data from the annual Northern Ireland Life and Times survey. Topics explored include the extent of change in attitudes centred on religion, politics and community relations. Other topics contribute to the more general social policy debate and include health, social capital, lifelong learning, men's issues, culture and attitudes to work. The report draws on data from the 2000 and 2001 surveys, as well as on data from previous years.
