Census Update

Census 2021

The next Census is due to take place in Spring 2021 and it will be predominantly online, supported and quality assured by administrative data. NISRA held a topic consultation on the 2021 Census in Winter 2015 – the consultation document is available from the NISRA Website. All responses were made publically available in March 2016 and a final NISRA response to the consultation was published in August 2016. In summary the key issues from the consultation were:

  • Overwhelming support for the Census
  • Significant user demand for the topics in the 2011 Census including some new ones
  • User demand for a better and more flexible output geography

NISRA are currently developing an operational plan for the 2021 Census and will consult with users on outputs closer to 2021.

Census Update

Additional commissioned tables have been added to NINIS with 286 commissioned tables now available. Recent data include:
