COVID-19 Income supports - an analysis of recipients

Since March 2020, the Government has introduced a range of measures to provide financial support to individuals and businesses who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This new report, ‘COVID-19 Income Supports: An Analysis of Recipients’, presents an analysis of the recipients on the main COVID-19 income supports that have been made available.
The aim of this Frontier Series is to provide insight into the recipients of the different COVID-19 income supports by demonstrating how the levels of recipients have changed over time and presenting the characteristics of the recipients of the different schemes. This is an example of the policy-relevant research projects the CSO are developing as part of its leadership role in the Irish Statistical System.
