What is the Young Life and Times Survey?
All too often the opinions of young people are ignored when decisions are made about many of the issues involving them.
However, since 2003, the Young Life and Times (YLT) Survey has collected the views of 16 year olds living in Northern Ireland. This annual survey provides young people with an opportunity to share their experiences of school, their views on politics and sectarianism, and many other social and personal issues that affect their lives.
The range of topics varies from year to year. And by inviting respondents to suggest topics for the next year's survey, we make sure that the issues covered in YLT are relevant to the lives of young people in Northern Ireland today.
The survey receives ethical approval from the School Ethics Committee of School of Social Sciences, Education and Social Work, Queen's University BelfastClick here to view the Privacy Notice for the 2023 YLT Survey.
