  3. Notes: The equivalence scale used here, and elsewhere unless otherwise stated, is 1 for the first adult, 0.66 for other adults (aged 14 or over) and 0.33 for each child (aged under 14). This is the scale used in the official measure of poverty in Ireland, and is close to that implied by the structure of social welfare payments.
