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. SILC was conducted by the Central Statistics Office (CSO) for the first time in 2003 under EU legislation (Council regulation No. 1177/2003) and is currently being conducted on an annual basis. The survey is also carried out in other EU member states allowing comparable statistics to be compiled on a pan-European basis. Preliminary results for SILC 2010 were published by CSO in November 2011. This final detailed publication contains further tables and analysis of 2010 SILC data.
