Individual Wellbeing in Northern Ireland

The Individual Wellbeing in Northern Ireland report provides estimates for people aged 16 and over across four areas which reflect individual wellbeing, and was produced for the first time in 2020/21.

The four areas of individual wellbeing included in the report are:

  • Loneliness – the frequency with which people report feeling lonely
  • Self-Efficacy – a person’s belief about their capabilities to exercise influence over events that affect their lives
  • Personal wellbeing – how satisfied people are with their lives, their levels of happiness and anxiety, and whether or not they think the things that they do are worthwhile
  • Locus of Control – the degree to which a person feels in control of their life
