Northern Ireland Making Life Better (MLB) Area Profile

We have added a new Making Life Better Area profile for Northern Ireland to NINIS. Making Life Better is the strategic framework for public health. It is designed to provide direction for policies and actions to improve the health and wellbeing of people in Northern Ireland and to reduce inequalities in health.

This new profile provides information on the health and wellbeing of residents in Northern Ireland; other geographic levels are available including LGD2014, Health Trust and Assembly Area. Health and wellbeing indicators have been grouped according to the Making Life Better Frameworks' themes. Appendix 3 of the Making Life Better Key Indicators 2015 report published by the Department of Health outlines the key indicators and baselines which are reflected in the Area Profile.

NISRA You may have noticed that NISRA have a brand new logo.

The three segments of the pie chart represent NISRA's key functions: Statistics; Research; and Registration.

The new logo maintains the link with the previous logo through the design but brightens it with some colour and uses a sharper typeface giving it a fresher feel. The new colour scheme is also in keeping with the interior design of NISRA's new headquarters - Colby House.
