Poll: Does Ireland have a discrimination problem?

ESRI research says black people, women, and those aged over 45 all experience discrimination. How bad is the problem?

ESRI research found that ethnic minorities, people aged 45 and over, and women were all likely to experience discrimination.

RESEARCH PUBLISHED TODAY shows that Ireland’s black population reported the highest level of discrimination amongst the various cohorts of Irish society.

The ESRI research also found that women were more likely to be discriminated against than men, while people aged 45 or older often felt discriminated against when they went looking for jobs.

Meanwhile, those with disabilities felt discriminated against in the provision of public services, particularly in health and transport.

This morning we’re asking whether you feel Ireland has a genuine social problem with discrimination – and, if so, how bad you perceive it to be. So: does Ireland have a discrimination problem?


Poll Results:

Yes, but it's relatively minor (1046)
Yes, and it's significant (999)
No, there's no problem (624)
Yes, and it's massive (407)
I don't know (310)
