This week, Craig Dalzell is joined by Ellen Dalzell to discuss the Demographics of Independence. Ellen has campaigned for several years both for “New Scots” to be included in Scotland’s democracy both through being able to vote – which they now can – but also for them to be better included in data that informs democratic campaigning. They discuss the current weaknesses in the data we have and how that has given rise to misconceptions about the voting intentions of New Scots. They then talk more broadly about the findings of Craig’s latest policy paper that examines who has shifted from No to Yes since 2014 or vice versa.

Ellen’s article in Source on data about New Scots can be read here.
