ARK currently has 7 resources
  • Life and Times Survey
  • ORB – Online Research Bank
  • CAIN – Conflict Archive on the Internet
  • Survey Analysis Unit
  • Surveys on Line
  • NI Elections
  • Northern Ireland Household Panel Survey (NIHPS) Analysis Unit
slide4
The Role of ARK
  • NIHPS Analysis Unit
    • Develop NI expertise in handling the survey data
    • Analyse the data
    • Promote the survey among the research community in NI
    • Exploit the data to its maximum benefit for policymaking
format of the day
Format of the day
  • Introduction to the NIHPS
    • How the survey is carried out
    • Main contents of the questionnaires
    • Overview of the data files
  • Using the On-Line data documentation
    • Finding the way around the website
  • Working with the NIHPS data files
slide6
The NIHPS is an extension of the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS)
  • Why do panel survey?
    • Can track the movement of individuals and households within society
    • Useful for examining what factors lead to the movement into and out of poverty, ill-health etc.
slide7
Institute of Social and Economic Research (ISER) responsible for the technical aspects of the survey across the UK
    • Design of the survey
    • Questionnaire development
    • Data validation and weighting
  • Fieldwork in NI carried out by NISRA
slide8
Wave 1 – households drawn randomly from across NI
    • achieved sample 1,978 households and 3,458 individuals
    • Household Response – 69%
    • Individual Response – 89%
slide9
Wave 2 response rates
    • Within households at least 1 person responding – 87%
    • Complete Household Response for all eligible individuals – 70%
    • Interviews at Waves 1 and 2 – 83%
  • Fieldwork for Wave 3 ongoing
slide10
Unique value of the NIHPS:
  • Follows the same representative sample of individuals over a period of years
  • Household-based, interviewing every adult member of sampled households
  • Allows change to be measured at the gross as well as the net level
slide11
Sample Membership Status:
  • Original Sample Members (OSMs) -always eligible to be interviewed
    • All members of Wave 1 households
    • Their natural children born after the start of the study
  • Temporary Sample Members (TSMs) – eligible only while living with an OSM
    • People who form households with OSMs after the start of the study
slide12
Sample Membership Status:
  • Permanent Sample Members (PSMs)
    • TSMs may become PSMs if they are deemed to have a sufficiently strong continuing bond to an OSM to justify following them even if they cease to live with that person
slide13
There are 3 main parts to the NIHPS
  • Household Interview – Household Reference Person (HRP)
  • Individual Interviews - each member of the household aged 16+ (rising 16’s)
  • Self-complete questionnaire - each member of the household aged 16+ (rising 16’s)
slide14
In addition:
    • Proxy Interview for household members unavailable at the time of the interview
    • At Wave 4, young people aged 11-15 will complete young person’s questionnaire, then join adult panel at age 16
slide15
There are 3 components to the NIHPS:
  • Core component
    • Repeated every year
  • Rotating core component
    • Usually repeated every 2/3 years
  • Variable component
    • Asked once in the life of the panel study e.g. where born, age left school
