Erratum - "Profile 7 Religion, Ethnicity and Irish Travellers - Ethnic and cultural background in Ireland"

Since the publication of "Profile 7 Religion, Ethnicity and Irish Travellers - Ethnic and cultural background in Ireland" in October 2012 the CSO has discovered that a correction on Page 37 to the number of Irish Traveller households with some form of central heating was required. The number of Irish Traveller households in permanent housing units should have read 6,579 and of this number 97per cent had some form of central heating. Page 37 has been amended to reflect this change.

Any inconvenience caused by this amendment is very much regretted. For further information please contact census@cso.ie

Erratum - Profile 10  Door to Door – Commuting in Ireland.

Since the publication of "Profile 10 Door to Door – Commuting in Ireland" in December 2012, the CSO has discovered that corrections to Table 8 (County of place of work) and Table 10 (persons aged 15 years or over at work, classified by County of usual residence and place of work) were required. As a result these tables have been amended, along with figure 16 on page 17, the commentary on page 19 as well as web tables CD027 and CD031.

Any inconvenience caused by this amendment is very much regretted. For further information please contact census@cso.ie

Error in coding of persons from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Republic of the Congo

Table 18 of the report This is Ireland - Highlights from Census 2011, Part 1 distinguished 2,276 persons as being born in the Republic of the Congo; a further 425 were coded to the Democratic Republic of the Congo and included in the group Africa other.

When answering the Place of Birth question on the Census form the majority of respondents from both the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Republic of the Congo indicated that they were born in "Congo". With this information alone it was impossible to distinguish which of the two countries the person was in fact from. A similar situation arose with the nationality with the majority of respondents writing in Congolese. The coding methodology used, combined with the lack of detail in the information supplied on the form, means the results on place of birth and nationality for both countries should be treated with caution.
