Disability and Social Inclusion in Ireland

2005

People with disabilities and long-term illnesses are disadvantaged in many aspects of social inclusion. A new study, funded jointly by the NDA and the Equality Authority, entitled "Disability and social Inclusion in Ireland", by Brenda Gannon and Brian Nolan, ESRI, examines how people with disabilities and long-term illnesses fare by comparison with others in Irish society in terms of:

  • educational attainment;
  • earnings;
  • poverty;
  • social participation.

Social exclusion is more widespread where people are severely hampered in their daily lives.
