APPENDIX 15
Counties Ranked According to Quality of their Rural Housing in 1851 and 1881

The counties are ranked according to the percentages of their houses that were second and fourth class in 1851 and 1881, to the number of rooms per house, and to the increase in second-class houses between 1851 and 1881; the counties with the highest percentage of second-class houses, the lowest percentage of fourth-class houses, the most rooms per house, and the biggest increase in the number of second-class houses are ranked first. The provinces are ranked from first to fourth, in the same way.

Civic areas, that is towns with 2,000 and more inhabitants, are excluded; the number of rooms was calculated by assuming that fourth-class houses had one room, third-class houses had three rooms, second-class had 7.5 rooms, and first- class fifteen rooms; the increase in second-class houses between 1851 and 1881 was measured by comparing their percentages in 1851 and 1881.

On the limitations of housing statistics as a measure of wealth see Alan Gailey, "'Changes in Irish rural housing, 1600-1900'", in Patrick O'Flanagan, Paul Ferguson, Kevin Whelan (eds.), Rural Ireland, 1600-1900: Modernization and Change ( Cork, 1987), 86-103.
