Membership Motivations

Show Summary Details


The results of an open-ended question on why members joined the party are analysed. Independence is the main reason for joining for over half the membership though a significant part of the membership gives answers conforming with a more generalized view that the SNP as ‘good for Scotland’. The motivations of different cohorts of the membership are explored.
