Disability and Social Inclusion in Ireland

People with disabilities and long-term illnesses are disadvantaged in many aspects of social inclusion. A study, funded jointly by the National Disability Authority 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.
