PDF (State of the nation's children 2006.)

The report is an important resource for all those who seek to understand the experience of childhood in Ireland. It covers many different aspects of children’s lives, including their health, behavioural and educational outcomes, their relationships with their parents and their friends, and the services available to and accessed by them. The report brings together information from administrative, survey and census data, which is already in the public domain. Indeed, it is clear that we have a substantial amount of statistical information about children’s lives, but this report also shows the gaps that exist. A commitment to improving data about children has been given in the recent Social Partnership Agreement, Towards 2016: Ten-Year Framework Social Partnership Agreement 2006-2015, and I will be ensuring that progress is made in that regard.
