Methods pilot survey

A pilot survey is taking place between January and February 2022 to test and evaluate the proposed method change for data collection. A Pilot (Phase 1) report is due to be published on the Commission’s website and social media platforms in April 2022. Subject to the success of the method change, we will continue to the next phases of the project.

Further questionnaire and study development

Between January and June 2022 questionnaire development work will take place in response to the feedback and findings of this stakeholder engagement report. This will include cognitive testing of specific questionnaire elements in February and March 2022.

Phase 2: Experimental statistics

The new survey is planned to launch in July 2022 with a one- year period of experimental statistics in which we will continue to test new methodology and make survey improvements.

Phase 3: Official statistics

The implementation of the new methodology will commence from July 2023 on a permanent basis and report official statistics.

Further stakeholder engagement panels will be held at appropriate points over the next two years of the project from 2023 to 2025.
