Cherishing All Equally 2016
Issued : July 2016
Cherishing All Equally 2016 is the second report in an annual series and is part of a long-term project by TASC to monitor trends in economic inequality in Ireland. It presents key economic inequality indicators in Ireland, which year-on-year will provide critical information for the public, for policy makers and activists alike. This year’s report includes two in-depth themed sections regarding the impact of economic inequality on gender and children.
In this centenary year, Cherishing All Equally 2016 provides an important contribution towards understanding economic inequality in Ireland one hundred years after the 1916 Proclamation, which declared:
‘The Republic guarantees religious and civil liberty, equal rights and equal opportunities to all its citizens, and declares its resolve to pursue the happiness and prosperity of the whole nation and of all its parts, cherishing all of the children of the nation equally’.
TASC has also produced three Report Highlights, which provide an overview of the key findings from Cherishing All Equally 2016, the first Report Highlight 1 provides an overview of the main findings of the 2016 Report, the second Report Highlight presents the key economic indicators and the third Report Highlight provides the key findings in relation to the extent and impact of economic inequality on children in Ireland.
