2017 Census Test

The 2017 Census Test is now complete.

In September and October 2017, NISRA held a Census Test involving 15,000 randomly-selected households across Northern Ireland. This was to allow us to try out proposed questions in preparation for the next census in 2021.

NISRA would like to say thank you to everyone who took part in the 2017 Census Test. You’ve played an important part in helping us make sure the 2021 Census is a success.

If you require any further information on this please contact us by email or phone.
