Wellbeing In Northern Ireland Report 2022-2023

5th Mar 2024

This report provides 2022/23 estimates for people aged 16 and over in Northern Ireland (NI) across four areas which reflect wellbeing:

  • Loneliness – the frequency with which people report feeling lonely
  • Self-Efficacy – a person’s belief about their capabilities to exercise influence over events that affect their lives
  • Personal Wellbeing – how satisfied people are with their lives, their levels of happiness and anxiety, and whether or not they think the things they do are worthwhile
  • Locus of Control – the degree to which a person feels in control of their life. Individuals with an internal locus of control believe in their own influence and control while those with an external locus of control believe control over their lives is determined by outside factors
