Poverty Focus 2021

In Poverty Focus we examine the nature and experiences of poverty in Ireland. Drawing on the available statistical evidence, we outline how poverty is measured, the value of the poverty line and consider many of the groups in our society who are most exposed to living life below the poverty line. This year we pay particular attention to the role that increases to welfare payments and supports has made to recent reductions in the headline poverty risk measure.
