Overview

User Engagement on “Northern Ireland Transport Statistics” publication

The Northern Ireland Transport Statistics publication (link) presents information on the road network, public transport and accessible transport in Northern Ireland. 

Introduction

This statistical report is a compendium publication produced by the Analysis, Statistics and Research Branch (ASRB) of the Department for Infrastructure (DfI). It brings together mainly management information on the road network and public transport along with National Statistics and management information on accessible transport in Northern Ireland. The report is published each year around September/October and is produced in accordance with the Code of Practice for Statistics (link).

ASRB statisticians have recently been engaging with key customers on the Northern Ireland Transport Statistics publication. It is clear there is a need for official statistics on public transport and ASRB are considering focusing resources on the development of official public statistics from Translink’s data. ASRB would therefore like to engage more widely with users of this report.     

Why we are consulting

ASRB statisticians would welcome your views on the cessation of this statistical publication in its current format and also on proposals for a new official statistics publication on public transport.  We also want your views on the provision/publication of the existing management information. 

An anonymised summary of the results and the outcome of this user engagement will be published on the DfI website

The survey should take less than 5 minutes to complete.
