11/08/2022 - NEW NISRA Data Portal

NINIS Users

NINIS has been NISRA’s main method of disseminating statistical data relating to small areas across NI, as well as NI as a whole, for a number of years. Whilst NINIS is still operational, it doesn’t conform to Accessibility requirements, is not mobile responsive and is inefficient to update, creating the need to develop a new dissemination system. NISRA has been developing a replacement for NINIS which will also host other NISRA data. A beta version of the new system - The NISRA Data Portal has been launched

The NISRA Data Portal will give users the flexibility to slice and dice datasets, run meta-data searches, filter results, plot interactive charts, visualise data over interactive maps, share results and automate processes by reading data via API queries. The outputs follow the Open Data recommendations by providing access to multiple data formats (CSV, JSON-stat, PX, and XLSX).

NINIS is still available and will be available in the medium term, however the plan is data will move across to the NISRA Data Portal over the coming months. Data currently on NINIS will either, move across to the Data Portal, be archived or made available on the NISRA website, depending on the dataset.

A matrix will be created that maps where the data currently sits on NINIS to where it will be found in the future. A NISRA Data Portal user guide, instructional video and FAQ section (linked in the footer) has been created to help you navigate and use the new system. Free Online training sessions, if needed, will also be available.

The system is currently live, although not yet widely publicised. Currently there is a limited amount of data available, more will be populated in the coming months. We are inviting you as NINIS subscribers to explore the beta site and provide us with some feedback, on both the system and the training materials provided, by completing our short feedback survey (this can also be accessed via the feedback link in the banner across the top).

16/02/2022 - NISRA Household Surveys

Incomplete Datasets due to COVID-19 Pandemic.

NISRA suspended all face-to-face survey interviews in the middle of March 2020 due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. In the reporting period April 2020 – March 2021 all interviews carried out, were conducted by telephone. Consequently, the sample size of many surveys was greatly reduced and therefore not suitable for breakdown by sub Northern Ireland geographies. Where datasets are incomplete, please refer to the metadata for further information..
