The LGBTIreland Report details the findings of a national study of the mental health and wellbeing of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people in Ireland, with a special emphasis on young people.

This 'Key Findings' outlines some of the major findings of The LGBTIreland Report, which had two separate components.

Module 1 of the study was conducted to gain a better understanding of the lives of LGBTI people in the Republic of Ireland and the factors that may impede or facilitate their mental health and wellbeing. It comprised an online survey which gathered data from 2,264 LGBTI people (38.6% gay male,26.5% lesbian/gay female, 14.4% bisexual, 12.3% transgender, 2% intersex and other identity 6.3%).

Module 2 assessed public attitudes towards LGBT people to gain a better understanding of how the social environment can shape the lives and wellbeing of LGBTI people in Ireland. It comprised a survey administered via telephone to a nationally representative sample of 1,008 people in Ireland aged from 18 to 65 with quotas set on age, gender, class and region.
