A new report from the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) has found that people living in disadvantaged areas experienced greater disruption to their employment during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The study, entitled 'Pandemic Unemployment and Social Disadvantage in Ireland', was carried out in collaboration with Pobal.

Pobal is an organisation that administers and manages Government and European Union funding to address disadvantage and support social inclusion.

The research found that compared to affluent areas, pandemic unemployment increased more rapidly among individuals living in deprived areas during lockdown periods.
