The World Health Organisation (WHO) has established a global network of Age Friendly Cities and Communities that encourage active ageing by optimising opportunities for health, participation and security in order to enhance quality of life as people grow older. The WHO has proposed eight areas that can help to identify and address barriers to the well-being and participation of older people.

Age Friendly Area Profiles on NINIS include key statistics on each of these themes and also some demographic and deprivation statistics. They can be accessed by entering your postcode in the postcode search box to open an Area Profile at Local Government District (LGD2014). You should then select the ‘Age Friendly’ tab.

Wait! Enter a postcode, street or area to view summary statistics for that area.

Infographics to accompany these profiles are also available for each Local Government District (LGD2014):

Census Update

Census 2011 Combined Grid Square Product for Northern Ireland which provides basic 2011 Census statistics for a combination of 1 kilometre and 100 metre grid squares in Northern Ireland will be published at 9.30am on 15 October 2015.

The next census in Northern Ireland will be in 2021 and as part of the census consultation programme, NISRA has launched a public consultation asking users for their views on the topics that the 2021 Census questionnaire might cover. You can respond to the topic consultation online.

More information on the topic consultation can be found on the 2021 Census consultation page.

Area Profiles

In addition to the Age Friendly Profiles at Local Government District (LGD2014), Area Profiles for the Making Life Better Strategy are now available at Health Trust (HSCT).

Making Life Better Area Profiles can be accessed by entering your postcode in the search box at the top of the web page. This will open an Area Profile at Local Government District (LGD2014). You should then select the HSCT geography and ‘Making Life Better’ tab.

Work is currently underway to develop a Making Life Better Profile for Local Government District (LGD2014).
