Wexford County Council commissioned the All-Island Research Observatory (AIRO) to prepare a series of reports based on six socio-economic themes.
• Employment, Industry and Occupation
• Commuting Flows
• Demographics – Population, Nationality and Pobal HP Deprivation Index
• Education and Field of Study
• Health and Disability
The reports are primarily based on Census 2016 information and provide very useful information and statistics on a range of topics including who we are (demographics), where we live and the type of housing we live in (housing), our education levels and what we work at and where we work (employment & commuting). The reports provide comparisons to other counties in the South-East, the Southern region and the state.
The information is also displayed on maps to show the geographic spread of trends. The reports allow us to compare how things have changed since the first Socio-economic Report on the county was prepared by AIRO in 2015.
