The Young Life and Times Survey (YLT) originally began as a companion survey to the Northern Ireland Life and Times Survey (NILT) series (available at the UK Data Archive under GN 33235). It surveyed young people aged 12-17 living in the households of adults interviewed for NILT, and YLT ran alongside it from 1998-2000. However, YLT underwent evaluation in 2001, and the YLT series began again in 2003 (see SN 4826), using a completely different methodology, and independent of the adult NILT. This new YLT Survey uses Child Benefit records as a sampling frame, and contacts all 16-year-olds who celebrated their 16th birthday in February of the survey year. Although a few questions are asked that are also included in NILT, the rest of the survey now covers quite different topics. The aims of the YLT series are to: monitor public attitudes towards social policy and political issues in Northern Ireland provide a time series on attitudes to key social policy areas facilitate academic social policy analysis provide a freely available resource on public attitudes for the wider community of users in Northern Ireland give a voice to young peopleSimilar surveys of young people in Great Britain, the Young People's Social Attitudes surveys (available from the Archive under GN 33338), were conducted alongside their parent British Social Attitudes Surveys (available at the Archive under GN 33168). Further information about the YLT, including publications, may be found on the YLT web site.
