ICMSA / Irish Examiner Farming Poll 2015

The Irish Examiner will publish its annual farming survey - in conjunction with the ICMSA - from Tuedsay, September 22.
ICMSA / Irish Examiner Farming Poll 2015

The survey is designed to provide a robust and accurate snapshot of the attitudes, beliefs and opinions of the farming community about a range of issues, both farming and social. The survey involved 569 interviews with farm dwelling adults in the Republic of Ireland.

Fieldwork was completed by Behaviour & Attitudes over a seven week period between June 27 and August 15, with interviewing undertaken on-site by Behaviour & Attitudes interviewers across eight agricultural shows.

The sample size is large and the data has a statistical margin of error of +/-4%.

The sampling approach involves a random probability method, with interviews being undertaken with attendees provided they worked and/or lived on a farm. 465 interviews were with farmers themselves and the balance mainly with spouses who also work on the family farm.
