The unit manages the fieldwork on a number of regular national surveys, and conducts Northern Ireland specific surveys on behalf of Government Departments.

How do I take part in a survey?

Thank you for your interest in NISRA’s Surveys.

For every NISRA Survey a random sample of addresses in Northern Ireland is selected.  This approach gives every address in Northern Ireland an equal chance of being selected. 

If your address has been chosen you will receive a letter from NISRA with instructions on how to participate.

If you have not received such a letter then unfortunately you cannot participate at this time.


Information on the active surveys is available from the Household surveys page.
