Growing Up in Ireland (GUI) has contributed greatly to our knowledge about the lives and outcomes of children and young people. However, little is still known about whether child outcomes vary spatially. The large sample size and the coverage of all of the key domains of children’s lives mean that Growing Up in Ireland data have a unique advantage in assessing the extent to which experiences and outcomes among children and young people vary geographically, more specifically, by county. This feasibility study sets out to:
1. Examine whether county-level variances in selected child outcomes are significant in scale;
2. Explore the extent to which any such variation is related to the composition of the county (in terms of its population and otherwise) across a range of characteristics.
