This confirms what Barnardos sees on the ground nationwide, with the numbers of children living in overcrowded conditions rising by the month. The CSO report shows that close to 1 in every 10 people now live in accommodation with more people than rooms. This is a rise of a staggering 28% since the 2011 census.
