Statistics and research support
Welcome to the NISRA Geography web pages where you can access and download a range of maps and digital products that support the use of geography in developing statistics.
Official statistics are fundamental to good government, to the delivery of public services and to decision-making in all sectors of society. In this section you can learn more about the Code of Practice for Official Statistics, Pre-Release Access and find out who produces Official Statistics in Northern Ireland. You are also invited to take part in a short NISRA user survey.
The role of the NISRA Research Support Unit (RSU) is to allow researchers safe access to project specific de-identified data in a secure environment in order to carry out secondary data analysis.
