Webinar: Poverty, income inequality and living standards in Ireland

This is the first report from a new ESRI research programme funded by the Community Foundation for Ireland which seeks to address gaps in our knowledge and understanding of poverty, income inequality and living standards in Ireland.

It presents results from a new harmonised set of indicators derived from large-scale household surveys covering the period 1987 to 2019 that can be used by policy makers, academics and the wider public to inform discussions around these pressing issues and the appropriate policy response.

Please register for attendance by Wednesday 12 May 2021.

The launch will take place via Zoom. An access link will be issued one hour before the event
