A new report published by the ESRI today (17 January 2017) finds that education is key to improving the employment and living circumstances of Travellers. The authors of A Social Portrait of Travellers in Ireland draw on the full 2011 Census of Population to explore whether certain groups of Travellers (in terms of gender, age and region) experience particularly high levels of disadvantage in four areas: education, employment, housing and health. According to Census 2011, the Traveller population consists of just under 30,000 individuals or 0.6 per cent of the population in Ireland.
