The progress indicators used in this report were chosen because they help to:

  • Identify important gender differences in the activities of men and women;

  • Assist users to identify the underlying reasons that explain these differences;

  • Present the situation in Ireland in an international context.

This web-based edition of Women and Men in Ireland is organised so that the 73 indicators are presented categorised under 6 themes from the Sustainable Development Goals:

  • Sustainability
  • Health
  • Education
  • Gender Equality
  • Work
  • Poverty, Peace and Justice

In the 2019 report the male rate of admissions for alcoholic disorders to psychiatric hospitals was more than 50% higher than the female rate, and for other drug disorders admissions for males was more than three times that of females (health chapter).
