On several occasions in recent years, Ireland has been taken to task for the alleged smallness, percentage-wise, of its social security payments, by comparison with other countries in Western Europe. Comparisons are odious, never more so than with statistics, because one is rarely comparing like witn like. In other words, in making comparisons allowance should be made for countries' relevant circumstances.
