Correction Notice

As part of our quality assurance processes, we have identified an error in the production of ‘Limiting Longstanding Illness’ data and this affects Table 3, Table 7 and Figure 32 in the Phases 1-8 NISRA Coronavirus (COVID-19) Opinion Survey Key Findings. These were identified and corrected as soon as possible on the 13th April 2021. There is no change to the overall trend shown previously by these data.

The Personal Wellbeing Measures By Longstanding Illness table and COV_1 How often do you feel lonely, condensed limiting longstanding illness chart have also been updated in the accompanying Visualizations file.

For comparison, the previously published data from the Key Findings is available, alongside the latest revised figures.

The same error occurred in Phases 1-4, Phases 1-6 and Phases 1-8 and the affected tables and charts have also been updated in the Key Findings reports and Visualizations files for those time periods.
