Social Inclusion Monitor 2011


The purpose of the Social Inclusion Monitor is to report on progress towards the national social target for poverty reduction by providing regular, timely and accessible updates on key national indicators. It also reports on the Irish contribution to the Europe 2020 target, and on poverty trends for children and jobless households.  It is primarily based on the findings of the Survey on Income and Living Conditions, undertaken by the Central Statistics Office. The focus of the Monitor is on social and economic outcomes as they relate to poverty and social exclusion.


There are three elements to the Monitor:

a) the national social target for poverty reduction, including the sub-targets for children and jobless households and the Europe 2020 target;

b) supporting indicators which capture key dimensions of poverty that underpin progress towards the target; and

c) contextual indicators relating to lifecycle and vulnerable groups, as well as specific policy dimensions of poverty.


The inaugural issue of the Social Inclusion Monitor was published in March 2013.  This report is based on analysis of SILC 2011 data.  The Monitor will be published on an annual basis to support the implementation of the national social target for poverty reduction.
