Scottish Referendum Study

Scottish Referendum Study in the media

30 March 2015 01:00–31 March 2015 00:59

The most recent findings of the Scottish Referendum Study were published on Friday. The team, which includes academics from the universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow and Essex, has been focussing on who voted which way and why they did so.

Their findings contained a few surprises, which were reported widely in the media. The Guardian, Herald, Scotsman, Record, Telegraph, Express, BBC, STV, National and others focussed on the limited role played by the Vow in the decision of a majority to vote No. The Sun, Record, Times and Courier were among those titles to focus on the fact that a majority of those born in Scotland voted Yes.

Three of the report’s authors, Professors Ailsa Henderson and James Mitchell of the University of Edinburgh and Dr Rob Johns of the University of Essex were interviewed extensively in the broadcast media.
