Northern Ireland Election Study 2015-16

The study was designed to examine the basis of people’s party choice at the 2015 Westminster election: Why did they vote for a particular party? What are the religious, social class, economic and other key variables in determining voting patterns at the election? Is there any sign of a thawing of the ethno-national divide? What were the main issues at the election for voters? Did some voters switch parties and if so, why?
