Labour Force Survey Quarter 3 2017 - CSO - Central Statistics Office

First one of these, replaces the Quarterly National Household Survey.

This is for q3 2017.

The figures included in this are significantly higher that was in the q2 2017 survey, and now show that 2.2m people are working in Ireland, surpassing the previous high of q3 2007.

Full time employment at 1.768m is also back to its 2007 peak numbers, with the growth in employment in the last 12 months being accounted for a massive growth in full time employment and a decline in part time employment.

"The increase in total employment of 48,100 in the year to Q3 2017 was represented by an increase in full-time employment of 113,900 (+6.9%) and a decrease in part-time employment of 65,800 (-13.1%). See table 1 and figure 1.
On a seasonally adjusted basis, employment increased by 10,300 (+0.5%) over the previous quarter. This follows on from a seasonally adjusted increase in employment of 4,300 (+0.2%) in Q2 2017, an increase of 17,200 (+0.8%) in Q1 2017, an increase of 15,900 (+0.7%) in Q4 2016 and an increase of 16,200 (+0.8%) in Q3 2016. See table 3."

The numbers unemployed, 163k, is showing a year on year decline of 37k, with the labour force up to 2.37m, again back to its 2008 peak.
Unederemployed, running at 116k

Unemployment at 6.7%.

How much of the drop is accounted for by job activation schemes, which are not counted on the live register?

Staggering increases in numbers of people. But nothing to do with immigration

Once you are comparing like with like. So if you are taking q3 2017 and q3 2016, or end of September figures, then in Set 2017 Activation has 57k, on it, and in the previous year that was 65k - so based on that narrow analysis, activations contribution to employment growth is minus 8k.

Go to table A1 in the report.
For people over the age of 15 , non Irish at 505k, Irish at 3.3m.

Of the non Irish, the number employed 342k, with 29k unemployed.

About 1 in 7 people working are non Irish.

Of those 342k non Irish working, 78k come from outside the EU.

How many people aren't working?
Counting everyone over the age of 15, 3.8m. Of those 1.4m are not in labour force.

"International Comparisons
The employment rate in Ireland increased by 1.1 percentage points to 67.4% over the year to Q2 2017. The employment rate in the EU-28 in Q2 2017 was 67.7%. See table 11.
The unadjusted unemployment rate among the EU-28 countries in the second quarter of 2017 was 7.6%, while the comparable rate in Ireland was 6.9%. The highest unemployment rates among the EU-28 countries in Q2 2017 were recorded in Greece and Spain (21.2% and 17.2% respectively), while the lowest rates of 3.0% and 3.8% were recorded in the Czech Republic and Germany respectively. See table 11.
The latest figures available at the time of finalising this release indicate that the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for the EU-28 for November 2017 was 7.3% compared to the revised seasonally adjusted monthly unemployment rate of 6.4% for Ireland for the same period."

We will have to wait and see.

Support increasing strangely enough :)
From where it was in 2011? I don't think so.

But what has increased is the numbers homeless, the hundreds of millions of virtually tax-free profits for 'vulture' funds, the cost of renting and buying a place to live, hospital waiting lists...societal things.

How many times does it have to be pointed out on this site that the estimates of unemployment, as produced by CSO today, have nothing to do with the Live Register. They are based on household interviews as described in the detailed notes produced by CSO to accompany the results. By the way, they should be congratulated on the comprehensive information provided on the changes introduced by benchmarking to the 2016 Census and changing to a new type of survey, Anyone commenting on these results should really read this information first.

Yes, I've always admired FF for introducing divorce and same sex marriage. And abolishing domestic rates, thereby destroying local government. Always.

Hard to believe that we have come from a ANNUAL € 25 BILLION BUDGET DEFICIT to a Balanced BUDGET.

Well done FG.

All of societies ills cured ?

Aren`t house prices still low compared to 2007 ? Down 30% after nearly 11 years.

Same sex marriage was driven by Labour, but in any event, where did I say anything about FF. Also, if you ask people what they view as important societal issues, I expect they will talk about health, housing, education and public services generally. Divorce, SSM and even abortion, are viewed as singular issues...interestingly, issues which didn't cost much in terms of public funding...societies require tax revenues and for those revenues to be shared around. That's not what a lot of people consider a strong FG characteristic

Cured? It's about how they have consciously and deliberately made them worse.

Love the way you claim credit for FG following the recovery plan put in place by FF, which FG voted against four months before getting into office!

Any idea how we compare internationally? (Generally, not the furennir question)
