Poverty in Ireland

In this section you will find information on poverty and social exclusion in Ireland:

Facts about Poverty introduces you to the concepts, causes and effects of poverty in Ireland.

Measuring Poverty explains the methods used to gather and analyse data on poverty.

The Statistics page links you to the principal source of Irish poverty data, the annual EU-SILC survey conducted by the Central Statistics Office, and to other sources of statistical information on poverty and social exclusion in Ireland.

Information for Students shows you where to find information for school projects and Information for Teachers provides information and resources for teachers of CSPE and related subjects.

In the Glossary, you will find definitions and explanations of terms used in the discussion of poverty and social exclusion.

For historical information on poverty, social exclusion and community development in Ireland in the 1980s and 1990s, our older publications, in particular our annual reports, submissions and earlier issues of Poverty Today, contain valuable contemporary analysis of economic and social policy and accounts and evaluation of community development and anti-poverty work in this period. These are available in our Publications Archive.

For further information, visit our Links pages which contain extensive links to web resources on poverty, social policy and social inclusion. You may also find our Publications and Library pages useful.
