Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

The aggregate data produced as outputs from censuses in Northern Ireland provide information on a wide range of demographic and socio-economic characteristics. They are predominantly a collection of aggregated or summary counts of the numbers of people or households resident in specific geographical areas possessing particular characteristics.

Small Area Statistics for Northern Ireland have been made available as a result of a collaborative project between the Census Office for Northern Ireland, ESRC and Queen's University, Belfast. The Small Area Statistics (SAS) for Northern Ireland are the principal digital output from the 1991 Northern Ireland Census. They are broadly similar in structure to the 1991 Great Britain Census. They constitute the most detailed resource of 100 per cent sample socio-demographic data in Northern Ireland, with all variables available at a high level of spatial resolution (Enumeration District).

Data can be accessed through Casweb.




Main Topics:
The data are arranged into tables which can be thought of as collections of variables grouped together by topic for convenience. There are 75 tables. The tables correspond as much as possible to those for Great Britain but there are some differences.
