To estimate the cost of ‘back-to-school’ time, MummyPages analysed
the responses of 1,766 mums who participated in its ‘Back-to-School’ survey 2015.

Our survey represents mums from every county in Ireland. Monetary values were calculated based on the average spend per mum in each county on school-related costs and takes all variables into consideration.
