Go to release: Business In Ireland 2015
The Central Statistics Office today (17th November, 2017) publishes the thematic Business in Ireland 2015 which outlines the key statistics for the Irish business economy in 2015. Business Demography data (largely based on administrative data from the Revenue Commissioners) are used to analyse the number of enterprises and employment across the five sectors of Industry, Construction, Distribution, Services and Financial & Insurance. This data is combined with the Structural Business surveys, which are run annually by the CSO.
Commenting on the publication, Statistician Barry Kelleher said: “Today’s publication provides a wealth of information on the structure of the business economy in Ireland. The publication is based on the latest Business Demography and Structural Business Survey statistics.
This publication provides answers to many key policy questions, such as:
The CSO would like to acknowledge and thank the many enterprises who completed their enterprise survey questionnaires. Without this extensive cooperation, this publication and a range of other important statistics would not be available. The CSO also wishes to acknowledge the contribution of the Revenue Commissioners, as the information provided by Revenue to the CSO is of critical importance in compiling these necessary outputs. All such administrative data provided is only used for statistical purposes, and we think you can see the benefits of this data sharing in this very informative publication.
