Description:
The Terms of Reference state that the feasibility study for the development of a local poverty index should build on existing approaches by broadening the range of indicators and utilising other data sources, including administrative data. Furthermore, the local poverty index should be linked with the emerging Irish Spatial Data Infrastructure (ISDI) and support the monitoring of local poverty trends under NAPS. The key objectives include the following: a. The identification of best practice approaches to measuring poverty at the local level, based on a review of international literature, including the main policy domains and the data sources used b. The assessment of user needs and potential benefits of establishing a local poverty index, with particular focus on the application of this index for policy purposes. Consultation with relevant stakeholders would inform this component of the research c. The identification of possible indicators of poverty and deprivation and associated data sources at a local level and how these would be connected with the remit of the ISDI and the Steering Group on Social and Equality Statistics (SGSES) d. The examination of methodologies for compiling, managing, utilising and disseminating the data, including the usefulness of a composite index, the use of GIS and the web, the use of postcodes as the basis for small area statistics and the links with the ISDI e. The making of recommendations for developing a local poverty index, including an overview of delivery requirements, costs and resources.
