Family Resources Survey report 2020 - 2021

Date published: 22 September 2022

Last updated: 14 February 2023

The Family Resources Survey for Northern Ireland 2020-21 was released on 22 September 2022. The proposed date of next publication will be Summer 2023.


Data collection in 2020/21 was impacted by COVID-19 restrictions resulting in a heavily reduced sample size. This has led to additional uncertainty around the estimates, particularly for smaller groups. As such, whilst these statistics have undergone extensive quality assurance prior to publication, we recommend that users exercise additional caution when using the data for 2020/21. We especially advise caution when interpreting some of the changes observed since the previous, 2019/20 release.
