Elizabeth Nixon (TCD), Richard Layte (TCD) and Maeve Thornton (ESRI alumna)
This report is concerned with understanding how the economic recession in Ireland affected stress within families, and in turn how this is associated with the behavioural and emotional adjustment of 3-year-olds. It uses longitudinal data from the ’08 (Infant) Cohort collected when the children were 9 months and again at age 3 years.
Assistant Professor Elizabeth Nixon gave a presentation of the economic strain report at the launch:
Aisling Murray (ESRI), Eoin McNamara (ESRI), James Williams (ESRI alumnus) and Emer Smyth (ESRI)
The report presents further details on the lives of children from the Growing Up in Ireland study (Cohort ’08) when they were aged 5 years. The results cover the socio-economic circumstances of the families in which the 5-year-olds lived and those children’s outcomes in key domains of health, socio-emotional development (including relationship with parents) and school/cognitive development.
