Following the Irish Supreme Court ruling on Statutory Rape in May 2006, the Minister for Children took a decision to seek the views of teenagers on the age of consent and other matters relating to teenage sexual activity, since he believed that the voice of young people had not been heard during a major national debate on this issue. 210 young people, aged 15-18, were consulted by the Office of the Minister for Children in five locations around the country.

Unequal at Birth - Inequalities in the Occurrence of Low Birth Weight Babies in IrelandAdobe PDF format document

The principal objective of this research is to: 1. assess the effect of socio-economic status on low birth weight using data from the National Perinatal Reporting System; 2. consider these findings in the light of the NAPS target; 3. explore the relationship between socio-economic status and low birth weight; and 4. review the evidence for what works in reducing inequalities in birth weight. This report found that babies born to parents who are unemployed were at over twice the risk of being low birth weight in 1999, when compared to those born to parents recorded as higher professionals. Teenage and unmarried mothers also had a significantly increased risk of having a low birth weight baby in that year.
