Shut-down of NINIS

Date published: 03 July 2023

The Northern Ireland Neighbourhood Information Service (NINIS) is being shut-down.

The Northern Ireland Neighbourhood Information Service (NINIS) is in the process of being shut-down, and will be available for a short period of time via the NINIS Statistics page.


NINIS hosts area profiles, statistics, interactive content and maps and work is underway to ensure that, as far as possible, users can still access this information.  The NINIS redirect page sets out alternative locations for the NINIS information or contact email addresses for  users to request data if it is not available online.


The NISRA Data Portal is now live and replaces the statistics element of NINIS.  It is the source for data on our population, society and economy.

Over the last few months, the Data Portal has been populated with various NINIS datasets as well as additional datasets that were not available on NINIS.

The Data Portal gives users the opportunity to view and filter data sets, plot interactive charts and visualise data on interactive maps, save queries, create favourite datasets and widgets, access data in mulitple formats - xlsx, csv, JSON-stat, px and share results and automate processes using API queries.

Training materials (NISRA Data Portal user guide, instructional video and FAQ section) have been published to help you navigate and use the new system (linked in the footer of the portal). Online training sessions and help, if needed, will also be available.

If you have any questions, have any feedback or want to express an interest in joining an online training session please get in touch -
