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

A Fox News poll released Thursday showed President Trump losing head-to-head matchups against four of the top Democratic presidential primary contenders. […]
Wefail offers this charming collection of four banknotes, each featuring one of the four “horsemen of the apocalypse”, at least when it comes to the demise and presumed annihilation of Britain’s political stability. $50 a set. Four Wefail banknotes depicting the four horsemen: May, Rees-Mogg, Bojo and Thatcher. Early in 2019 I was asked to […]
If there’s one thing that stayed consistent through the last decade or so of tech industry turmoil, it’s the love affair between techies and Linux. There’s just a ton you can do with the OS, and its open-source format means you can customize your rig from the ground up. Apparently not content with that level […]
Accidents happen. And when they do, you’re going to want a dash cam for a second pair of eyes. At the minimum, a decent dash cam can save you vast sums of time and money in case of an accident. But a really good dash cam can do a whole lot more. Here are six […]
The field of data analytics is growing as fast as the internet itself. Self-driving cars, airline pricing, and huge marketing campaigns are all driven by the insights that data scientists can distill out of vast sums of information. Even with the help of powerful software like Python, it’s a highly skilled position. But those skills […]
