It is necessary at the outset to emphasise the experimental character of the paper, the principal object of which is to present the results of a special analysis of a sample of 6,280 families from the Census of Population of 1951. The traditional unit in the Irish population census, as in the censuses of all countries, is the individual. Here an attempt is made to use the family as a whole as the basic unit.
