Technical Paper on the Poverty Indicators for Social Inclusion in Ireland
Social Inclusion Technical Paper No. 11
In this technical paper, we provide a review of the poverty and social inclusion indicators that are used by the Irish Government for poverty reduction and social inclusion targets. We give a brief overview of Ireland’s progress on the social inclusion goals and targets set in the Roadmap for Social Inclusion 2020–2025. Additionally, we discuss the advantages and limitations of the chosen indicators and, where relevant, propose additional or alternative indicators. Finally, we investigate the relationship between the old (EU2020) and new (EU2030) at risk of poverty or social exclusion (AROPE) and the Irish measure of consistent poverty.
