Type: Report
Region: Republic of Ireland
Description:

The positive ageing indicators report is an outcomes framework to monitor trends and changes in the participation levels, health, and security of older people in Ireland, at a national level. The positive ageing indicator set was developed by the Healthy and Positive Ageing Initiative and reported for the first time in 2016.

The 2018 report contains two new developments:
– new indicators relating to healthy ageing that fill indicator gaps identified in 2016
– supplementary indicators for two groups in Irish society who were not sufficiently represented in the indicator set in 2016: Irish Travellers and people with an intellectual disability (ID).

Together, these reports are the result of research collaboration between The Department of Health through the Healthy and Positive Ageing Initiative, The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA), IDS-TILDA, the intellectual disabilities supplement to The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing, and Pavee Point Traveller and Roma Centre. Further, and since 2015, almost 500 citizens have engaged with the Healthy and Positive Ageing Initiative to develop the positive ageing indicators and supplementary indicator sets.
