Description:
This report aims to bring together some facts and figures about older people in Ireland today, drawing on a range of statistical sources and studies. It provides both a snapshot of the current situation and some discussion of recent trends and prospects for the future. The information will be particularly useful when developing policies that affect older people, such as the National Action Plan for Social Inclusion (NAPinclusion) and policy on pensions. We start the report by describing the main trends in numbers of older people and their importance in the overall population. We then go on to look at the following topics: the households in which older people live; their socio-economic circumstances including income and material wellbeing; their housing and neighbourhood environment; their health and social contact; and prospects for the future and data gaps.
