Living Standards

Ireland is the fourth best country in the world for living standards. That's according to the newest UN Human Development Index. Over the last five years, living conditions have risen faster than any other country. Between 2012 and 2017, Ireland jumped 13 places on the index published yearly by the UN Development Programme. The cost of living in Ireland is high. Good and services cost 25 percent more than the EU average, with high price tags on essentials such as rent, transportation and child care. There are fewer government services for things like childcare and housing, so the Irish have to rely on private companies. The lack of competition from the government keeps the prices high.
