Updated Northern Ireland indicators

  • Not in education, employment or training:
    • fourth graph (by deprivation of area): more pupils in deprived catholic areas go on to Further or Higher Education than do pupils in deprived protestant areas.
  • Older people with no private income:
    • first graph (compared to Great Britain): two-fifths of single pensioners – and a fifth of pensioner couples – have no income other than the state retirement pension and state benefits. These proportion are much greater than those in Great Britain.
    • second graph (not contributing – by income): the proportion of workers without a current pension increases as household income decreases. Three-quarters of those in the poorest fifth do not have a current pension.
    • third graph (not contributing – by age): for all ages from 30 to retirement age, around two-fifths of workers do not have a current pension.
  • Without a bank account:
    • first graph (compared to Great Britain): at all income levels, the proportion of households lacking a bank account in Northern Ireland is much higher than in Great Britain.
  • Physical environment:
    • first graph (risks): there is a strong relationship between the state of the local outdoor physical environment and the deprivation of the area. The relationship between housing quality and deprivation is much less clear.
    • second graph (shares): well over half of areas with the worst physical environment are in the most deprived fifth of all local areas.
  • Victims of crime:
    • first graph (by deprivation of area): Assaults are much more common in areas with above-average deprivation. Burglaries are also a bit more common but the differences are much less.
