Ireland - Annual report monitoring economic inequality - February 28, 2017

The Progressive Post has pointed at the TASC’s 2016 annual report monitoring economic inequality. It updates indicators for different dimensions of inequality such as income and wealth, social protection, education, childcare, etc. Separate chapters focus on economic inequality in relation to gender and to children. The country’s economic model involves low taxation and one of the highest rates of low paid work in the OECD. Consistent child poverty almost doubled during the recession. Despite economic recovery, overall rates of material deprivation continue to rise.
