In-work poverty in the Republic of Ireland

category national | economics and finance | news report author Friday November 22, 2019 21:40author by 1 of indy Report this post to the editors

The Nevin Economic Research Institute (NERI) one of the few non right wing think tanks regularly produces interesting reports, research and other information. Information that is key to understanding what is happening in our society and how various socio economic factors are trending.

In a recent "In Brief" four page report that they have done on work, they analysis the risk of poverty rates across the broad categories of employment in Ireland. One of it's key findings is that: deprivation rates are higher in 2017 than in the years leading up to the crisis, including for full-time, permanent staff. The analysis also shows that for all but one of the seven categories, Irish employees in 2017 were less likely to be able to meet an unexpected expense (of approximately €1,000) than before the financial crisis.

Summary of the InBrief on In-work poverty in the Republic of Ireland

The Survey on Income and Living Conditions (SILC) collects data on a selection of consumption-based indicators relating to the living standards of individuals as well as details related to the nature of their employment.

This research categorises employees by permanency of contract (permanent/temporary), by usual hours worked (full-time/part-time) and by the reasons for part-time employment. The analysis measures the in-work poverty of these groups between 2004 and 2017 using two consumption-based indicators: material derivation and ability to afford an unexpected expense.

This inBrief shows that for all seven categories of worker set out in this analysis, deprivation rates are higher in 2017 than in the years leading up to the crisis, including for full-time, permanent staff. The analysis also shows that for all but one of the seven categories, Irish employees in 2017 were less likely to be able to meet an unexpected expense (of approximately €1,000) than before the financial crisis.
