    The aim of this paper is to summarise the state of knowledge about the extent of low pay in Ireland. At the outset, some of the underlying elements which influence low pay are outlined. In relation to this, some of the changes in the labour market in recent years, which have a bearing on the incidence of low pay, are briefly discussed. There follows an outline of the current knowledge about the main features of low pay. The emphasis here is on presenting some initial findings from an analysis of the 1987 ESRI survey of income distribution, poverty and usage of State services. At the same time, some reference back to earlier work is made. At the end of the paper, some policy questions which arise from the paper are raised.
