NI Longitudinal Study Awards Portfolio

Research projects were funded (with matched funding from the Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC)) to exploit the NILS Dataset and support public health policy.

The NILS data set provides a unique anonymised dataset comprising linked demographic and health & social care information from the linkage of Census returns, information on births, deaths, migration, and HPSS data. It is maintained by the Northern Ireland Statistics Research Agency (NISRA).
