While intolerance and racism have long been concerns of the UK, in Scotland, there is the added concern of sectarianism. This research aims to gauge intolerance, and sectarianism as they exist within Glasgow, and register a baseline for these against which future research can benchmark.
The methodology utilised means that the database contains other information about tolerance, including attitudes towards having homosexuals, asylum seekers etc. as immediate neighbours and the acceptability or otherwise of various slang terms used to describe different groups of people.
The dataset contains the codified responses to 1,029 household interviews conducted within the City of Glasgow, undertaken in order to ascertain the extent to which religious sectarianism was a determinant in a number of critical life choices.
