Out tomorrow, usually at 11am.

Right so, any guesses?

I'll go for stable with Standardised Unemployment Rate around 12.5%.

The bloodbath will emerge in 4 weeks...

Guessing unemployment figures is so 2009. (most of the nutjobs on this site confuse Dole figures and unemployment)

When will Torres score his next goal?
What will the 3rd quarters' growth rates be?
How low will residential property prices go?
When will Cowen go?
When will Rafa go?

Doesn`t matter anyway. The figure is massaged to suit the EU to show we are getting worse but more slowly :)

Depends on Emigration, people running out of benefits and FAS training. December can be hard to judge. Probably little change plus or minus. As Alonso says this month the bloodbath begins.

December means nothing. The bloodbath coming next month is what will turn the tables.

Prepare for incoming. :cool:

1 Who belives CSO numbers?
2 Sure millions have gone to Australia
3 Sure millions are on phony FG/Labour schemes
4 Sure millions are on part time and slave wages
5 Whatever you are having yourself
Talk about chicken lickens running around squawking how awful the world is!

Are you denying that any of these have an influence on the figures?

Naysayers have a fascination with forecasts and predictions. They are invariably wrong but what is right is that the jobless total is coming down.

Be happy, there is good news and let's hope the government keeps up the good work during 2014.

Just pointing out what the unemployment rate was supposed to be by 31st December 2013, Cogar.

Most companies set milestones and when they miss those milestones there is normally some commentary as to the target being missed.

It was not 'supposed to be' - it was forecast - it was predicted and both were wrong - not anything to fret about or to analyse.

If the figures were in the other direction then we would have a worry. They have gone down 18 months in a row.

Now, that's good news.

Incorrect.

Each milestone is set as part of the governments budget strategy to "help restore the public finances", according to the blurb.

What is the point of setting milestones, if when those milestones are missed, there is no commentary?

Targets are something to aim at - some are missed - up and down. But the naysayers are incapable of giving ANY credit to the government but will waste no opportunity to carp and cavil mostly on ideological grounds and there on partisan party political grounds.

Bottom line is since this government came to power at least 250000 of our young people have had to leave their home country to obtain employment , hell of an indictment of any country , any politician , and any fool such as yourself crowing about some minuscule growth in employment figures
