    Default Affluence.....!

    Or as it is being slated in the IT, "Rich land, Poor land"

    Rich land, poor land - The Irish Times - Sat, Jan 05, 2013

    you can drill down to the relative wealth of your road, or part of your road. Our rural viewers have less granularity.

    There are some mad anomalies. Like half a block of flats in Tallaght / citywest being "very affluent" with the other half being merely slightly above average.

    There is a red blob near poppintree near Ikea which is the most deprived area. it is a halting site.

    Surprised this did not make it onto here before.

    Thanks - very interesting.

    It doesn't seem to go down to road level - although it does go down to very small areas

    I haven't seen details on how they determine wealth. The cost of living in urban areas is likely higher than rural areas so you can't determine wealth purely on earnings. Some rural people could also be income poor but asset rich.

    Yahoo, I'm a working class hero, according to my road; more effluent that affluent then I suppose, wouldn't mind but I do like quiche.

    Thank God, hate to part of middle class mediocrity.


    I wonder do the neighbours know!

    In my immediate area the bigger houses detached houses, some with better addresses, are marked down vis a vis the smaller houses. which does not make sense. There are several anomolies here. I do not buy the methodology and the absence of real deprivation in some utterly grim areas in Dublin.

    All i know is that we probably paid for this to be done.

    Interviewing the SVDP in each constituency and parish would have yielded far better info.

    Interesting! Did the census have a question on income and is that what they used to determine what to describe it as? Did they use the answers to questions such as how many rooms you have etc? They mention the census data in the I.T. article...

    it'll have driven you mental before then, I've also texted my brother to inform him that the park in-front of his house is more affluent than he is.
