Growing Up in Ireland is the national longitudinal study of children designed to inform policy affecting children and their families. The study follows two cohorts of children, born roughly a decade apart. The families of Cohort ’08 (the Infant Cohort) were first interviewed in 2008/2009, when the child was 9 months old. They were re-interviewed when the child was 3 years, 5 years, and 7/8 years (the latter by postal survey) and between July 2017 and March 2018 when the child was 9 years old.

This Key Findings report is the first in a series on the lives of these children at 9 years of age. It focuses on the lives and circumstances of these 9-year-olds in post-recession Ireland, the financial situation of their families and changes in family structure over time. It also looks at the relationship with grandparents, out-of-school care for the children and the contribution the children make to family chores.
