Northern Ireland Pooled Household Survey (NIPHS) Report

Date published: 01 October 2015


The Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA) have identified a user need to produce more detailed sub‐regional and sub‐group statistics from household surveys. Following an in‐house feasibility study (with the support from Survey Methodology Division, Office for National Statistics (ONS)), it was found that by combining data from four existing core Northern Ireland household surveys such statistics could be produced.  As a result, statistics on labour market and other demographic factors have been generated with both greater geographical detail and smaller sampling errors than up to now. This report summarises this work – outline results will be published in the near future.
