The Atlas of the Island of Ireland
The Atlas of the Island of Ireland - Mapping Social and Economic Change
The Atlas of the Island of Ireland: Mapping Social and Economic Change provides for the first time a set of full colour, detailed maps and cartograms for a range of variables across the whole island of Ireland. Such maps have traditionally been difficult to produce because data are often incompatible due to differences in data collection across jurisdictions.
The Atlas provides a fascinating insight into population, housing, transport and the economy across the island and how these have changed since 1991. Funded by the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government (DoEHLG) the atlas has been developed by members of AIRO and ICLRD.
In total 62 variables have been mapped for the Island of Ireland in 1991 and 2001/02
General Demographics:Total Population, Population Density, Age Cohorts, Dependency Rates, Religion and Marital Status
Housing, Travel and Transport: Cars per Household, Distance to Work, Household Tenure and Type
Economy: Labour Force Participation, Economic Dependency, Industry of Employment
Each variable is explored across a double page spread.
On the left hand page we have included maps of the relevant variable in 1991 and 2001(NI)/2002(RoI) and a cartogram of the 2001/02 data.
The right hand page displays a map and cartogram of the change that has taken place between 1991 and 2001/02.
There is a detailed textual description underneath from various member of the wider ICLRD team.
