(2) Select a data source for the risk estimates:
    

(3a) View IPH published figures     or     (3b) Specify your own risk factor profile and explore "What if?" scenarios
Select the risk factors for which you will provide your own population sizes.
For the risk factors not selected, your population will be completed with 2010 values.
Enter your population counts into this table.
Help - Selecting a Data Source
Selecting a data source selects the nationally representative health survey that was used to estimate the risk of the condition. The survey in the Republic of Ireland was the Survey of Lifestyle, Attitudes and Nutrition (SLAN) 2007. The surveys in Northern Ireland were Health and Social Wellbeing Survey 2005/06 and Understanding Society 2009.
Help - Selecting Risk Factors
This option allows you to calculate prevalence estimates for some actual or hypothetical population and to explore "What If?" scenarios based on theoretical changes in the demographic profile or relevant lifestyle behaviours of the population.

Select all the risk factors if you want to fully specify the number of people in all the risk factor groups in your actual or hypothetical population. If you select only some of the risk factors then your population will be completed with a risk factor profile based on data from the selected survey combined with official population estimates for 2010.
Help - Selecting a Data Source: Republic of Ireland
The risk factor profile used in IPH published figures are based on data from the survey combined with population estimates (2010) and projections (2015, 2020) for the Republic of Ireland published by the Central Statistics Office. There are a number of different scenarios available for the population projections. The different scenarios are based on different assumptions about trends in mortality, fertility, international migration, and internal migration. The assumptions are:
    M0F1 Traditional
    M0F1 Recent
    M2F1 Traditional
where
    M0: Net international migration=0
    M1: Moderately positive but declining net international migration
    F1: Fertility rate remains constant at 2006 level (1.9)
    Traditional: Internal migration follows the patterns traditionally observed
    Recent: Internal migration follows the patterns recently observed

Help - Selecting a Data Source: Northern Ireland
The risk factor profile used in IPH published figures are based on data from the survey combined with population estimates (2010) and projections (2015, 2020) for Northern Ireland published by the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency. The population projections are the 2008-based principal projection scenario that incorporates what are considered to be the best assumptions, based on historical trends, about mortality, fertility and migration. The principal scenario assumes declining mortality, small positive net migration, and a fertility rate of 1.95.
