Ipsos carried out a survey on attitudes towards same sex marriage in Northern Ireland, during the lead up and in the aftermath of the same sex marriage Referendum in the Republic of Ireland. The poll found that two thirds (68%) of adults in Northern Ireland agree that homosexual couples should be allowed to marry.
Ipsos interviewed a representative sample of 1,000 adults aged 16+ across Northern Ireland. Interviews were conducted face-to-face between 20th May and 8th June 2015. Data are weighted to match the profile of the population. Where percentages do not sum to 100, this may be due to computer rounding, the exclusion of ‘don’t know’ categories or multiple answer.
