Compiled by redditor bezzleford, this map offers a rough view of support for independence in various European regions. Scotland and Catalonia are well-known hotspots, but I didn't know about Sardinia or Venice. And, of course, there's the good old Serb Republic!
"What does this map show?" - it shows the support for separatist movements that I could find data for in Europe
"How did you get these figures" - I made an average (usually three) of opinion polls which I will post below as part of my source. For some states I could only find 1 or 2 sources; Brittany (2), Galicia (1) and Republika Srpska (1)
"Why do you not have figures for Flanders, Lombardy etc." - Belgium was a very messy collection of statistics
with no clear direction as to what the general support for partition or independence were.
"But 90%+ of Catalonians just voted for independence?!" - please don't attack me for this as I merely made an average (as stated above) of the three most recent polls which averaged out to 44% in support of independence.
"What about an Independent Northern Ireland" - since it was a higher figure, I used support for a United Ireland. But otherwise if anyone is curious support for an independent Northern Ireland is around 5-7%.
"Are there any overseas territories of EU states with data?" - Yes. New Caledonia plans on holding an independence referendum next year (an official, legally binding one) and support appears to be around a quarter 1

“They can’t hug [their own siblings] goodbye. If they do, they’re told they will be written up and it could affect their immigration case.”
What do Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google all have in common? Somewhere in their framework, they all use MySQL, that most versatile (and free!) of database management systems. And they’re not alone. If your company or the one you’d like to work for wrangles data (and who doesn’t?), they’re going to need someone with a […]
