Women in Ireland are among the most fertile in Europe, according to a new report.

The highest fertility rate in the EU in 2010 was in Ireland at 2.07, well above the EU average of 1.59, the report entitled Women and Men in Ireland 2011 published by the the Central Statistics Office (CSO) states.

The findings also show that women in Ireland are likely to be more highly educated than their male counterparts, but work fewer hours and earn less.

More than 50 percent of women aged between 25 and 35 have a college or university qualification compared with less than 40 percent of men.

Findings show that young men are more likely to drop out of school early and girls perform better at second level education. Despite this, women earn lower salaries and are less likely to be represented in politics.
