Photo Gallery: Launch of Growing Up in Ireland report The Lives of 13-Year-Olds

Growing Up in Ireland will host the launch of a new report from their Child Cohort on the lives of 13-year-olds. Katherine Zappone, TD, Minister for Children and Youth Affairs will speak at the launch.

This report looks at key aspects of young people’s lives at 13 years of age. It discusses how young people fare emotionally as they enter adolescence and which groups are more likely to have depressive feelings. The report analyses how young people have settled into second-level education and their engagement with school. The analysis also looks at the extent of change and stability in young people’s lives since they were last interviewed at 9 years old and the impact of the recession on their families and themselves.
