Abstract

The purpose of this report is to provide an assessment of the current situation in County Wicklow in relation to economic, social and cultural development in order to assist the County Development Board in the preparation of its strategy for the next ten years. The content of the report takes account of the Department of the Environment and Local Government Guidelines document, A Shared Vision for County/City Development Boards. Comparative data for neighbouring counties are provided where appropriate and detailed mapping has been undertaken to illustrate patterns within the county wherever data are available. Much of the mapping is based on data from the 1996 Census of Population, which is undoubtedly a limitation. However, there are no more recent data available at sub-county level for most indicators. Where appropriate, county level data for more recent years have been used; otherwise comments have been inserted on the most likely direction of change since 1996.
