ARK’s resources on Attitudes to Minority Ethnic People

Via its suite of public attitudes surveys, ARK records and disseminates public attitudes to key social issues.   Northern Ireland Life and Times (NILT), Young Life and Times (YLT) and Kids’ Life and Times (KLT) elicit the views of adults, 16 year-olds and 10/11 year olds respectively. Although the surveys cover a wide range of topics, questions on attitudes to different communities living in Northern Ireland have been asked regularly in both NILT and YLT since their inception.

As such, ARK provides time-series data that are easily accessible and widely used.  Making information freely accessible is central to ARK’s work, via our website, publications, seminars, and other events.  This archive provides links to ARK’s survey data, publications and seminars which focus on attitudes to different communities in Northern Ireland, including minority ethnic people, migrant workers, refugees and asylum seekers
