Ireland Household Panel Survey
The Northern Ireland Household Panel Survey (NIHPS) is an extension
of the long-running British Household Panel Survey and is carried out
by the Central Survey Unit of the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research
Agency (NISRA). From 2003 to 2010, ARK housed an analysis unit dedicated
to facilitating users in their analysis of the NIHPS data.
Surveys On-Line provides quick and easy access to a range of social
science datasets. Users can view tables of results and/or the questionnaire
without having to analyse the full dataset themselves.
Social Survey Programme
Each year over 44 countries participate in the International
Social Survey Programme (ISSP) in which the same module of questions
is asked cross-nationally. Northern Ireland has taken part in this exercise
since 1989 via the Northern Ireland Social Attitudes Survey (NISA) until
1996, and then more infrequently via the Northern Ireland Life and Times
Survey (NILT). This section of the website contains tables of results
from a range of British, Irish and Northern Irish surveys.
