NB - respondents may have selected more than one identity ground as the basis for their experience. E.G. Gender and Age etc.

Methodology (Qualitative/Quantitative and exact type used, questionnaires etc)

"The Crime and Victimisation Survey is a household survey about crime in Ireland carried out by the Central Statistics Office (CSO). Crime and Victimisation 2019 was part of the Health and Crime Survey, conducted via the CSO's General Household Survey (GHS) during Q2 and Q3 2019. Interviews took place during a six month interviewing period between April and October 2019."

Sample details and representativeness

"The sample is stratified using administrative county and the Pobal HP (Haase and Pratschke) Deprivation Index. A two-stage sample design is used. In the first stage household blocks are selected using Probability Proportional to Size (PPS) sampling. In the second stage households are selected using Simple Random Sampling (SRS). This ensures each household in the sample frame has an equal probability of selection."
