Statistical Bulletin Indicator 31 Percentage of the population who think all leisure centres, parks, libraries and shopping centres are 'shared and open' to both Protestants and Catholics

Statistical bulletin reporting on one of the population indicators that informs Outcome 9 of the Outcomes Delivery Plan 2018 2019



Each year, the Northern Ireland Life and Times (NILT) survey takes a snapshot of the attitudes and beliefs of adults in Northern Ireland to a range of societal issues including housing, identity, sports, and community relations. The issues covered within the survey differ each year depending on interest, however a community relations module is included annually. Responses to these questions are used in the annual Good Relations Indicators report which monitors progress against the priorities of the Together: Building a United Community (T:BUC) Strategy.

A group of questions ask about people’s attitudes about “facilities” (leisure centres, parks, libraries, shopping centres) in their area. One of the population indicators informing Outcome 9 of the Outcomes Delivery Plan 2018-19 uses these to measure the percentage who have said all of the facilities they have in their area are “definitely” shared and open to both Protestants and Catholics.
