Consultation on proposed changes to the Northern Ireland Crime Survey

Closed 9 Jan 2018

Opened 9 Nov 2017


This consultation is seeking feedback on the proposed changes to the Northern Ireland Crime Survey.

The Northern Ireland Crime Survey is an annual face-to-face survey commissioned on behalf of the Department of Justice Northern Ireland (DoJ) and is an important source of information about levels of, and public attitudes to, crime and justice.

Why We Are Consulting

In the context of the current Programme for Government (PfG) and subsequent consultation responses, and as part of a more general assessment of user needs, we are carrying out a comprehensive review of the scope and content of the Crime Survey with the overall aim of ensuring it meets customer requirements in alignment with Departmental and PfG priorities. 

What Happens Next

Statisticians from the Department of Justice will review all consultation responses and will publish a report on the overall findings.
