Project description

Project Description

This project will profile contemporary emigrants using data drawn from the new Small Area (SA) Population Statistics developed for the 2011 Census. A population sample is being constructed, based on a series of rural and urban SAs and differentiated by socio-economic and educational background. A detailed profile of emigrants, supplemented by interviews, will be developed, focusing on destination, occupation and stated intention to return. 


For more information, see this recent Irish Times article on the the project.
