This document provides population and household data relating to deprivation for the eight CYPSC areas in Kerry. All data are from the 2011 Census, which means that the figures are not current. However these data were chosen because their availability at appropriate geographic level (District Electoral Division), allowing aggregation into Children and Young People Services Committee regions as other, more recent, data is not available at this level of geographical detail. The data can be updated in approximately 18 months using figures from the 2016 census.1 The following information is provided in the report for each of the eight CYPSC regions:  Population  Number of children  Size of family units  Number of single parent households  Persons age 15 or older by economic status ie at work, unemployed, retired etc  Population by social class ie professional, managerial and technical, non-manual, skilled manual, semi-skilled, unskilled  Persons aged 15 and over by highest level of education completed  Number of households by type of occupancy  Persons with a disability by age group  Persons at work by occupation  Number of private households with a personal computer These data are presented in Sections 2-7 in the main body of the report and Appendix A provides a list of DEDs in each region. The report begins with an overall comparison of all 8 CYPSC regions using the Pobal deprivation index (Haase and Pratschke, 2012).
