NI OPINION PANEL 'TRACKER' POLL (SEPTEMBER 2017)
LucidTalk run, and have been running, regular Northern Ireland (NI) Opinion Panel 'Tracker Polls' every 2-3 months to constantly gauge and estimate NI public opinion on a wide range of issues e.g. politics, business, consumer, lifestyle etc. Here we present the report from our September 2017 NI-Wide Opinion Panel Tracker Poll - this poll-project aimed to research NI representative opinions and views covering a range of issues including: Political Party preference, Irish Language Act, Same-Sex marriage in NI, Stormont institutions, and MLA salaries.
The polls are regular 'Tracker' polls of the established LT Northern Ireland Opinion Panel (now over 10,000 members). The LucidTalk Opinion Panel consists of Northern Ireland residents (age 18+) and is balanced by gender, age-group, area of residence, and community background, in order to be demographically representative of Northern Ireland. For this September 2017 post-election poll-project our NI-Wide and representative Opinion Panel was targeted, and invited to participate, 3,104 full responses were received, and 2,080 responses were used to determine the final results (researched to be a robust and accurate sample of NI opinion).

Polling was carried out by Belfast based polling and market research company LucidTalk. The project was carried out online for a period of 80 Hours from 1pm 8th September 2017 to 9pm 11th September 2017 (80 Hours). The project targeted the established LucidTalk NI-Wide Opinion Panel (10,103 members) which is balanced by gender, age-group, area of residence, and community background, in order to be demographically representative of Northern Ireland(NI). 3,104 full responses were received and a data auditing process ensured all completed poll-surveys were genuine 'one-person, one-vote' responses, and also to ensure a robust NI representative sample of opinion. This resulted in 2,080 responses being considered in terms of the final results, and that the 2,080 responses received and used were a demographically representative sample of Northern Ireland - producing results representative of NI Opinion to within an error of +/-3%.
