As a founder member of the Dublin Statistical Society in 1847, which became the Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland in 1855, O'Hagan pioneered the study of statistical and economic science in Ireland. His later belief - that Ireland's social and economic problems could be remedied through legislation - was in keeping with the philosophy of the statistical movement. He collaborated with the leading Irish economist and statistician, William Neilson Hancock, in making law reform a major objective of the statistical movement in Ireland.
