Description:
This is Ireland’s fourth biennial State of the Nation’s Children report. These reports, which provide the most up-to-date data on all indicators in the National Set of Child Well-being Indicators, aim to: ■■ chart the well-being of children in Ireland; ■■ track changes over time; ■■ benchmark progress in Ireland relative to other countries; ■■ highlight policy issues arising. Outline of report This State of the Nation’s Children report is presented in four sections, as follows: ■■ Part 1: Socio-demographics: This section provides information on the child population, child mortality, family structure, parental education level, Traveller children, foreign national children, children with a disability and children as carers. Data are largely drawn from Vital Statistics and the Census of Population. ■■ Part 2: Children’s relationships: This section provides information on children’s relationships with their parents and peers, including, for example, levels of reported bullying and children’s friendships. Data are drawn from the Health Behaviour of School-aged Children (HBSC) surveys and the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) surveys. ■■ Part 3: Children’s outcomes: This section provides information on children’s health outcomes, educational outcomes, and social, emotional and behavioural outcomes, including, for example, smoking, alcohol and cannabis use, births to teenage girls, health conditions and hospitalisation, educational attainment and self-reported happiness. Data are drawn from, among others, the Health Behaviour of School-aged Children (HBSC) surveys, the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) surveys, the National Intellectual Disability Database, the National Physical and Sensory Disability Database and the National Perinatal Reporting System. ■■ Part 4: Formal and informal supports: This section provides information on a range of supports, both formal and informal, including school, housing, antenatal care, immunisation and economic. Data are drawn from, among others, the European Union Survey on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC), Health Behaviour of School-aged Children (HBSC) surveys, National Perinatal Reporting System, Vital Statistics (CSO), Triennial Assessment of Housing Needs, and Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) surveys.
