Statistics & Research Branch has responsibility for a wide range of research relating to the Execuitve Office policy areas.


The statistical and research publications are intended to support the formulation and development of policy; assess impacts; provide a challenge perspective; and facilitate broader societal debate. Research is also conducted to provide statutory authorities with data and information to assist in undertaking their statutory duty under Section 75 on the Northern Ireland Act (1998).
