Results from SILC 2020 were updated at 11am on 06/05/2022 to better reflect the tenure distribution of Irish households. Subsequently, the Frontier publication ‘Poverty Insights – Income Reference Year 2018 to 2020’ was updated at 11am on 09/06/2022 to reflect the changes made to SILC 2020. In this publication SILC 2020 forms the basis for the results relating to income reference years 2019 and 2020.
In SILC, weights are applied to the data to ensure the results are reflective of the population as a whole. The survey weights for SILC 2020 have been adjusted to better reflect the estimated household distribution within the rental sector. In the Poverty Insights publication this has not impacted the overall at risk of poverty rate for income reference year 2019 (unchanged at 13.2%) but it has resulted in a reduction in the at risk of poverty rate for income reference year 2020 (12.8% compared with the previously published rate of 13.2%).
The following is a list of tables and graphs in the Poverty Insights – Income Reference Year 2018 to 2020 publication where data have been revised.
