Knowing Our Area – Dun Laoghaire Rathdown

Dun Laoghaire Rathdown
Planning well for the people in our Dun Laoghaire Rathdown area means having good information about the profile of the people and their needs. There is really valuable information drawn from the 2011 Census in a report commissioned by the Southside Partnership DLR – Have a look HERE.

For Example….

  • DLR is the most affluent local authority in the State, though there are several areas and groups experiencing disadvantage
  • DLR has the highest rate of personal computer ownership in the country and second highest rate of broadband connectivity
  • 14.5% of people in the DLR area are over 65.  This is higher than for Dublin as a whole (10.9%) and higher than the national average (11.7%).
  • 18.2% of people in the DLR area are aged between 0 and 14. This is lower than for Dublin as a whole (19.3%) and lower than the national average (21.3%).

And so much more…check it out.
