The purpose of this report is to conduct a statistical analysis on suicide data in Ireland in the year of 2016 (most recent available), and data on factors which could potentially influence it such as average household income per county and average monthly rent rates per county.

Throughout this report, I will be testing several aspects regarding the data and determining if it is suitable as a means of determining a correlation between suicide per county and various levels of economic inequality based on the factors mentioned above. I will outline all aspects of this project, from its inception to its conclusion below. These aspects include the methodologies necessary in order to carry out this project, the analysis stage of the project, the evaluation and interpretation of the results, and a conclusion detailing my final thoughts on the project following the evaluation process. I will also be outlining any future potential which this project/concept could entail and will be attaching any relevant documents to the appendix section of this report.
