Burden to Households and Individuals of Completing Statistical Surveys issued by Northern Ireland Departments, 2020/21

Date published: 10 June 2022


This report details the burden to Households and Individuals of complying with Government Statistical Surveys in Northern Ireland.

An accompanying report NI Statistical Surveys - Assessment of Cost Burden to Business 2020/21 is also available.


An online consultation seeking users’ views on proposals to reduce the content of the ‘Cost to Business’ report and discontinue the ‘Burden on Households & Individuals’ report was held between 21 December 2022 and 15 February 2023. The responses were supportive of the proposals, which is consistent with feedback received from other user engagement.

As a result, the 'Burden on Households & Individuals' report has been discontinued and the 2020-21 report will be the last in the series. 

A full write-up of the responses and actions taken as a result of the feedback is available on the Outcome of User Consultation on Survey Burden Reports page.
