Project Details


This project will use data-linkage techniques to develop the most comprehensive population-based estimates of the prevalence of learning disability (as recorded in the 2011 Census), and the variation of these estimates within and between small geographical areas in Northern Ireland. Furthermore, associations between personal, familial, social, and economic factors and learning disability will be examined. These aims will be met through the project’s two linked phases and will be conducted through the ADRC-NI who will facilitate analyses of the entire NI population.
