General description
The Integrated Household Survey (IHS) is a composite household survey which aims to produce a dataset of core variables in order to produce high-level estimates for particular themes such as sexual identity to a higher precision.

The 2013 Integrated Household Survey combined answers from the Living Cost and Food Survey and the Labour Force/Annual Population Survey.

Data collection and calculation
From August 2012 data on sexual identity was published at a NUTS3 geographic level. This is in response to concerns around small sample sizes and the robustness of the data. Data on sexual identity published on StatsWales was previously available at a local authority level.

Frequency of publication

Data reference periods
Data is available from 2010 to 2014. Data from 2012 is published on a calendar year basis to reflect changes to the Integrated Household Survey Sexual Identity dataset.
