Scottish independence

In September 2014, the people of Scotland went to the polls to vote on whether to remain part of the UK or to become an independent country. In the run-up to the referendum, researchers at IFS examined how taxation, spending and long-run fiscal balance differed between Scotland and the UK as a whole and what the implications of this might have been for an independent Scotland.
