UK National Wellbeing Measures: Northern Ireland Data

Introduction

The ‘Measuring National Wellbeing’ programme established by the UK Office for National Statistics (ONS) was launched in 2010 and sets out a range of measures, organised under 10 domains.  Further information on the ONS programme can be found at this link - ONS – Wellbeing.

Separately, work is being progressed on the development of a draft Programme for Government in Northern Ireland using an approach which sets out the outcomes to improve wellbeing for all.  When finalised, this outcomes framework will be the principal mechanism for assessing societal wellbeing in Northern Ireland.  Further information on the NI Programme for Government is available at this link - NI Programme for Government.

NISRA continues to participate in the ONS-led Measuring National Wellbeing programme.  The latest update of NI data is presented alongside UK data in a ‘wheel’ format that has been used by ONS in previous reports, and although ONS has now replaced this graphic with a dashboard, NISRA has decided to continue its use.  The latest update has also been shortened the latest update to include key information only; however we have expanded reporting through this website, with a separate page for each of the 10 domains (links below).  These domain pages include  time series information (where data are available), brief commentary on the latest findings and links to key sources of statistical information where you can access further information.  It is our intention to provide more timely updates to the measures on these domain pages.

We understand that this is a different format and are keen to hear any feedback you have.  Please forward any views or queries to Niall O’Neill (e-mail: niall.o'neill@nisra.gov.uk).   You can also provide feedback through a short survey - NI Wellbeing Feedback Survey
