Ensuring Value for Money and Quality
The Northern Ireland House Condition Survey (NIHCS) statistics team is committed to providing value for money, and to ensuring that resources are targeted where they are needed most. The statistics are also monitored for quality on an ongoing basis.
Value for Money
Part of the process of ensuring we get maximum value for money involves identifying similar research in Northern Ireland to make sure that there is no duplication of data.
The only other survey in Northern Ireland identified as producing data similar to the NIHCS is the Stock Condition Survey, which has been carried out twice (most recently in 2014/15). An assessment of the similarities and differences between the NIHCS and the Stock Condition Survey was completed and the findings are available to download here:
