Project: I am currently a sociology student and I intend to use the GUI survey data for my MA dissertation project. The title is: Defining and Measuring Child Poverty in Ireland Today through the Growing Up in Ireland Study. This will be a mixed methods project with an intention to use both qualitative and quantitative data from the GUI study in order to define and measure poverty from the point of view of children. I will pay particular focus to questions asked of children and the responses given in the child cohort with the aim of examining how children see themselves, their lives and others around them in relation to the signifiers of poverty.
