Who supports and opposes independence – and why?

Reports & Briefings
John Curtice

Now that the date of the independence referendum has been announced, the debate about Scotland’s constitutional future is in full swing. It is proving to be a strongly contested affair. But how deep are the differences and divisions within the Scottish public on this subject? Do different sections of Scottish society take sharply differing views? What appears to motivate people to back one side or the other? Is it primarily because they wish to express their sense of national identity or are they primarily concerned about whether independence would strengthen or weaken Scotland’s economy?
