Health survey Northern Ireland: first results 2015/16
Department of Health (NI)
This report presents results from the 2015/16 Health Survey Northern Ireland. The fieldwork for the survey was conducted between April 2015 and March 2016. Results are based on responses from 3,915 individuals, with a response rate of 60% achieved. There has been a downward trend in self-reported general health since 2010/11, when 73% of respondents reported good or very good health. Whilst there was no difference in the ratings for males (72%) and females (69%), a decline in general health rating was observed with increasing age. This is in keeping with previous health survey findings. Respondents in the most deprived areas were less likely to describe their health as good or very good (59%) than those in the least deprived areas (78%).
