Despite its relevance to broad areas of public policy, detailed assessments of the structure and distribution of the income of workers in the Republic of Ireland has been limited.
This Research inBrief, which summarises results from an accompanying NERI Working Paper, provides a profile of the distribution of work related earnings for both employees and the self-employed. Overall, the aim is to provide greater clarity on the shape of earnings across the state and in particular establish a more robust evidence base for our understanding of earnings.
The inBrief complements an NERI Working paper which is available here: Collins, M.L. (2015), ‘Earnings and Low Pay in the Republic of Ireland: A Profile and Some Policy Issues’ NERI Working Paper, 2015/29. Dublin, NERI.
