Statistics:

NISRA conducted a large-scale voluntary census test in Northern Ireland in autumn 2017.

The test involved sending a census-type questionnaire to a sample of 15,000 households, who were invited to respond online or on paper.

Objectives of the census test included testing the structure of two questionnaires and the ordering of a range of potential questions. 

A report on the 2017 Census Test will follow in due course.
