18 months ago, when we asked Irish people what causes them the most stress, 36% said "money worries."
In June 2015, paying bills is still Ireland's greatest concern but less people are now worried about paying bills (31%).
The percentage (12%) of people concerned about employment has fallen in line with unemployment rates suggesting increased job security is reducing stress, however men (who are more likely to be unemployed) are more concerned than women about keeping their job.
Family and health concerns are also a main cause of worry for Irish people.
Smaller percentages of people are concerned about other areas, which we will observe as growing concerns for Irish people:
- Increased taxes: 6% (vs. 5% Jan 15)
- Property prices: 6% (vs. 3% Jan 15)
- Euro failure: 5% (vs. 1% Jan 15)
