Description:
There were 26,484 people registered on the National Intellectual Disability Database (NIDD) in December 2010, representing a prevalence rate of 6.25 per 1,000 population. The prevalence rate for mild intellectual disability was 2.09 per 1,000 and the prevalence rate for moderate, severe or profound intellectual disability was 3.69 per 1,000. There were more males than females at all levels of intellectual disability, with an overall ratio of 1.32 to 1. The total number with moderate, severe or profound intellectual disability has increased by 39% since the first Census of Mental Handicap in the Republic of Ireland was carried out in 1974. One of the factors contributing to this increase in numbers is the growth in the general population over the period. Of the people with moderate, severe or profound intellectual disability, the proportion who were aged 35 years or over increased from 29% in 1974 to 38% in 1996, and to 49% in 2010. This reflects an increase in the lifespan of people with intellectual disability.
