to NISRA´s Equality Website
website has been designed to collate and disseminate statistics and
research relevant to equality of opportunity and its promotion within
the Northern Ireland public sector.
The driving force for the website is Section 75 of the Northern Ireland
Act (1998). This places an onus on all public authorities in carrying
out their functions relating to Northern Ireland, to have due regard to
the need to promote equality of opportunity between:
- persons of different
religious belief, political opinion, racial group, age, marital
status or sexual orientation;
- between men and women
- between persons with a
disability and persons without;
- and between persons with
dependents and persons without.
website brings together information from across government and provides
a basis for analysis. Its key service is the provision of detailed
datasets reflecting a broad range of social and economic circumstances
of the Northern Ireland population presented, where possible, by the Section
75 categories outlined above.
Datasets specific to Section 75 categories and policy areas, together
with related publications can be accessed via the “equality data”
button on the top bar. General publications can be found on the
“publications” area of the site. A comprehensive series of relevant
links is also provided.
