Survey reports

Published results of surveys relating to Education including the Northern Ireland Omnibus Survey and the Schools Omnibus Survey.

Northern Ireland omnibus - education module

The Omnibus Survey is carried out on a quarterly basis by the Central Survey Unit (NISRA) and is designed to provide a snapshot of the behaviour, lifestyle and views of a representative sample of the population.  

Core questions are asked during each survey, including individual characteristics and circumstances such as gender and age, allowing analysis by a range of factors. The other questions are modules which are commissioned by clients, seeking information on specific issues, for example education.

Twenty three questions relating to education are asked of the public, primarily to ascertain the attitudes and perceptions of people in relation to education, as well as to find out about their own experiences or those of their children.

School omnibus survey 

The School Omnibus Survey is an annual multi-purpose survey of all grant-aided schools covering a variety of topics. The purpose of the survey is to collect specific information from schools which is not available from another source, yet is essential to allow the Department to improve the support and guidance provided to schools, monitor the effectiveness of a range of policies, and to provide required information to its many stakeholders such as the Education Committee.
