Key statistics on Northern Ireland

NI: IN PROFILE is a resource pack of key statistics covering a range of areas of life in Northern Ireland. 

The pack brings together a range of data into a single place and will be of interest to a broad audience, including policy makers in the public and private sector, businesses, students and academics, schools and the general public. 

Statistics have primarily been sourced from across the Northern Ireland Statistics & Research Agency, however where official statistics are not available statistics from other sources have been included.

The pack is intended to provide a high-level statistical summary of life in Northern Ireland and you will note that it does not include detailed commentary.   If you wish to delve further into the detail of a particular statistic, you are encouraged to follow the links provided.

Thanks are due to those NISRA statisticians across all government departments who advised on the most appropriate statistics to include under their own area of expertise.  NISRA would also like to extend its thanks to the members of the general public  and businesses who have contributed to the provision of the statistics through their participation in the various surveys that the Agency conducts - without your participation and co-operation the provision of this resource pack would not be possible.

In the interests of continuous improvement and adding value, NISRA is keen to hear your feedback on NI: IN PROFILE and would appreciate any comments you may have (please e-mail comments to

The next update of NI in Profile to include the latest NI Census 2021 data will be published in spring 2023.
