Data analysis

The ERC provides ongoing support in the analysis and modelling of data for specific programmes. These currently include analysis of school attendance data on behalf of TUSLA, at primary and post-primary schools and the computation of a resource allocation model for special educational needs at primary and post-primary levels on behalf of the Department of Education and Skills. The resource allocation model is in its first revision stage (2019-2020).

Previous strands of data analysis have included the assessment of levels of disadvantage, and analysis of the 2013 ICT Census of Schools.
