dc.descriptionIn Ireland, as in many European countries, the rate of poverty and deprivation is higher for children than it is for adults. This is important, not only because of a concern with the well-being of children but also because childhood deprivation can have long-term negative consequences that persist into adulthood. This report examines childhood deprivation in Ireland in 2009 in the context of this concern for the current well-being of children and their future prospects. There are two further policy issues that form a background to this study. The first is the concern that household level measures of poverty and deprivation may not adequately identify children who are socially excluded because of a lack of resources. The second context is the widespread acknowledgement that social exclusion is multidimensional and that addressing social exclusion will require an approach that goes beyond a focus on income alone. The goal of this report is to address five questions: 1. How much child-specific deprivation is there in Ireland and what form does it take? 2. What are the main risk factors for child-specific deprivation? 3. How well do the national measures of basic deprivation and consistent poverty identify children who are deprived? 4. How do the risk factors for child-specific deprivation differ from the risk factors for basic household-level deprivation? 5. What are the implications for policy?en_GB
