Northern Ireland Seat Belt Surveys and Summary Bulletins

The NI Seat Belt Survey has been carried out by the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency on behalf of DOE since 1994, usually on an annual basis. From 2012 survey data have been collected at 12 sites throughout Northern Ireland comprising a mixture of urban, rural and motorway locations. Fieldwork involves observing stationary traffic and recording details of occupants such as gender, estimated age and whether a seat belt or child restraint is being used.

Previous editions back to 2005 are available from the Statistical Archive.

Northern Ireland Road Safety Monitors and Summary Bulletins

The NI Road Safety Monitor is carried out annually by the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency on behalf of the Department of the Environment as part of the NI Omnibus survey.  The results outline the behaviour, attitudes and awareness of the general public to key road safety issues in Northern Ireland, such as general awareness of road safety, carelessness and inattention, drinking and driving, and penalty points.

Previous editions back to 2005 are available from the Statistical Archive.

Readership Survey

During December 2014, a survey was issued to all the known users of our road safety statistics. The survey was designed to gather information on how users were made aware of the publications, to provide a greater understanding of who the users of the published data are, what they use it for, what they think of the range of data published, and to gauge satisfaction with the presentation and content of the publications. This approach is in line with the requirements of the Code of Practice for Official Statistics produced and monitored by the UK Statistics Authority.

The results from this survey are available below for your information. They will be used to evaluate the current presentation and content of road safety publications and to help identify any areas where there is scope for improvement. It is hoped that this summary report will be of interest to our users and stakeholders.

ASB would like to thank all the respondents who took the time to complete the survey and provide us with valuable feedback.
