The Healthy Ireland Survey 2021 – the seventh wave of this survey series - provides an update on key health trends within the population as well as a unique insight into the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on health behaviours and outcomes.

The survey covers a wide range of health behaviours including smoking, alcohol consumption and diet and weight. It also explores social connectedness, mental health and suicide and a range of other key health issues.

This wave of the survey shows that while many aspects of our health were impacted negatively by the pandemic there remains a strong desire to make positive health changes.
