Iontas Building, Maynooth University

On the morning of Wednesday, 26th November 2014, the International Centre for Local and Regional Development (ICLRD) in association with the All-Island Research Observatory (AIRO) will be holding a workshop on Mapping Census 2011, Key Trends and Implications for Policy and Practice on the Island of Ireland. This event will take place in the Iontas Building, Maynooth University (2nd floor conference room).  This will be the fourth in a series of census seminars that we will be hosting over 2014 to present the findings and trends emerging from an analysis of the results for the 2011 Census for Ireland and Northern Ireland.

This morning workshop on the 26th November will focus on the development of the All-Island Deprivation Index for 2011 at the Small Area (SA) level. This exciting project has been developed by Trutz Haase, Dr Jonathan Pratschke and Justin Gleeson.  It  will focus on the history of deprivation measures in Ireland, the development of the new 2011 All-Island Deprivation Index and provide an analysis and overview of the final results.  In the weeks following the workshop the authors will be officially launching the results of the All-Island Deprivation Index in an interactive on-line mapping tool to be hosted on the AIRO website. 

This technical workshop is being organised as part of the CroSPlaN II Programme, which is sponsored by the Special EU Programmes Body under the INTERREG IVA Programme.

Under our CroSPlaN II Programme, the ICLRD and the All-Island Research Observatory (AIRO) are continuing their long-standing partnership to introduce new evidence-informed planning tools and compatible census data in both an on-line and user-friendly format, as well as a hard copy atlas. Your attendance at this seminar would be very welcome and help us to identify the implications of emerging trends from the census data and new All-Island Deprivation Index. Please see attached the programme for the workshop.
