Incomes went up by more than 6% in 2015, according to new data from the Central Statistics Office.

CSO figures released earlier show, despite the overall increase, 17% of Irish people were at risk of poverty in 2015.

That is a slight drop on the previous year which showed 17.2% were at risk of poverty.

It also showed that almost 9% of people were consistently in poverty.
