A new report, published today (15th July) by the ESRI and the NCCA, looks at children’s wellbeing from their own point of view – their happiness, how they are getting on with schoolwork, whether they feel anxious, how popular they are, how they feel about their appearance and behaviour.
In a new paper released today (Wednesday, 17 June 2015) at the ESRI Budget Perspectives Conference, researchers at the ESRI explore some of the tax and welfare options facing the Irish government in the forthcoming Budget.
The ESRI works towards a national vision of ‘Informed policy for a better Ireland’. This means producing high-quality analysis to provide robust evidence for policymaking, with the goals of research excellence and policy impact.
The ESRI produces research that contributes to understanding economic and social change in the new international context and that informs public policymaking and civil society in Ireland.
