Description:

The Survey on Income and Living Conditions (SILC) in Ireland is a household survey covering a broad range of issues in relation to income and living conditions. It is the official source of data on household and individual income and also provides a number of key national poverty indicators, such as the at risk of poverty rate, the consistent poverty rate and rates of enforced deprivation. This report presents the preliminary results for 2010 and comparable data for previous years. Further data and analysis will become available in the near future.

Preliminary results from the 2010 EU-SILC:

 

Some key findings

  • Rising income inequality (quintile share ratio based on highest and lowest income quintile) and Gini coefficient
  • A decrease in the at risk of poverty threshold of more than 10%
  • Significant increase in deprivation rate to 23%

 

Fuel poverty

  • Proportion of population went without heating at some stage last year because could not afford it rose from 7.3% to 10.6% (For those at risk of poverty = 17.9%; not at risk of poverty =9.2%)
  • Proportion of population unable to keep the house adequately warm last year rose from 4.1 to 6.8% ( For those at risk of poverty = 12.2%; not at risk of poverty = 5.8%)
