NINIS About Us
Northern Ireland Neighbourhood Information Service (NINIS) aims to make small area information held within
Central Government and Non-Departmental Public Bodies available to as wide an audience as possible. The
NINIS website contains datasets on a range of socio-economic themes at small-area statistical geographies; area profiles
that provide statistical snapshots of an area and mapping facilities that enable statistics to be interpreted readily in a spatial context.
Since its launch in 2003
NINIS has focused on the improvement of the dissemination and accessibility of small area statistics.
NINIS provides a user-friendly tool for
accessing local level information and for monitoring social conditions and the impact of government policies. The project is operated by the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA), an Executive Agency within the Government Department of Finance and
Within NISRA, the Neighbourhood Statistics team is responsible for NINIS. We
provide a customer service function, answering any queries Monday-Friday either by telephone (028 90348111) or email
(email@example.com) and also provide both monthly seminars which incorporate PC-based training in McAuley House
(Belfast city centre) and ad-hoc commissioned seminars region-wide.
The Wellnet Eastern Area Investing for Health Partnership has commissioned a short film to look at their work under the theme of
'Building Capacity for Health Improvement'. Part of the film showcases NINIS/Investing
www.ninis.nisra.gov.uk/ifh training and internet based statistics services. NINIS/Investing for Health provides information on the health and well-being statistics identified under Investing for
Health Goals, Themes and Objectives.
