ARK, a joint collaboration between Queen's University Belfast and University of Ulster, is one of the most important sources of freely available data on attitudes in Northern Ireland. ARK runs a range of surveys, for example, the Kids Life and Times (survey of Primary 7 schoolchildren), the Young Life and Times (survey of 16 year olds) as well as the Northern Ireland Life and Times (adults aged 18 plus).
The survey results are published in regular research reports, usually aimed at a non-expert audience. Some of the findings have also been presented as seminars and recorded. Check the ARK Research Updates page for more details.
