Description:

The Continuous Household Survey (CHS) began in 1983 and samples approximately 1% of households in Northern Ireland each year. It is carried out by the Central Survey Unit of the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA) and is designed primarily to meet the information needs of government departments in Northern Ireland. The survey aims to provide accurate information, on an ongoing basis, about the social and economic conditions of the population of Northern Ireland and thus provide a means of examining relationships between the main variables with which social policy is concerned and in particular of monitoring changes in these associations over time. The CHS is modeled on, and is similar in form and content to, the General Household Survey which is carried out in Britain by the Office for National Statistics. The main topics covered in the 2007-2008 survey included demographic, personal, family and household information, religion, mobile phone/internet access, education, child and adult health, smoking, culture, arts and leisure activities, employment, job applications, accidents at work, income and benefits, and debt. Some of the questions are based on those asked in the GHS.
