Description:
The aim of this guidebook is to look at some sources of secondary data that may be useful in poverty research. Secondary data here refers to data that are collected for purposes other than research, but which may be of use in research. In the context of this report, secondary data sources on poverty also include data collected for research purposes other than poverty research, but which may shed light on various aspects of poverty. The primary focus of this guidebook is on the administrative records of Government Departments, Local Authorities, statutory organisations and community and voluntary groups. Poverty research has drawn extensively on national data sources, including the Census of Population, the Quarterly National Household Survey, the Living in Ireland Survey and the Household Budget Survey and it is assumed that the reader will have some knowledge of such major data sources. These widely used sources are outlined later. However, this guidebook is also concerned with drawing attention to less well-known and often under-utilised sources that can yield information on poverty. While a wide range of data sources is covered, the guidebook is not intended as an exhaustive list of sources of data or information on poverty. Such an undertaking would involve consideration of the data held by a substantial number and wide spectrum of organisations with an interest or remit in combating and/or analysing poverty.
