Diverse neighbourhoods: an analysis of the residential distribution of immigrants in Ireland

Download File


This study finds that relative to the Irish population, migrants are fairly evenly distributed across neighbourhoods in Ireland. 

This is positive, as migrant integration is more challenging in places where migrants are segregated from the host population. The study examines where in Ireland migrants live, how segregated they are from the Irish-born population and the types of areas they live in.

The analysis is carried out for all migrants, and then separately for EU migrants, non-EU migrants, and people with poor English language proficiency.
