Young Scots decide - Results from research study on attitudes of 14-17 year olds on the Scottish independence referendum
The first representative survey of 14-17 year olds in Scotland regarding the 2014 independence referendum asked a sample of young people about:
their views on Scottish independence and devolution
their feelings of Scottish, British and European identities
their political interest and engagement
their socio-demographic characteristics.
The survey results provide a detailed understanding of what factors influence young people’s attitudes towards Scottish independence. View the questionnaire.
