The Central Statistics Office (CSO) has today (06 July 2022) issued Monthly Unemployment Estimates results for June 2022.
Commenting on today’s publication, John Mullane, Statistician, said:
"The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for June 2022 was 4.8%, up from a rate of 4.7% in May 2022 and down from 6.3% in June 2021.
The seasonally adjusted number of persons unemployed was 134,900 in June 2022, compared to 128,100 in May 2022. There was a decrease of 26,000 in the seasonally adjusted number of persons unemployed from a year earlier.
In June 2022 the seasonally adjusted number of males unemployed was 69,200, compared to 68,700 in May 2022. The corresponding number of females unemployed was 65,700, compared to 59,400 in May 2022."
The methodology for the Monthly Unemployment Estimates involves forecasting the number of persons who are unemployed using the trend in the recipient Live Register series. The Department of Social Protection is providing Working Age Income supports to people arriving in Ireland from Ukraine under the Temporary Protection Directive. The Live Register series includes recipients of these supports who have met the relevant criteria. This has impacted on the numbers of unemployed, primarily females, in these monthly estimates.
Data in this release are subject to revision based on updates to the seasonally adjusted series whenever new monthly data are added. In addition, it should be noted that larger revisions can occur when the most recent Labour Force Survey (LFS) data are included in the calculation process.
The Monthly Employment Estimates published today for June 2022 have incorporated the LFS benchmarks up to Q1 2022 for the monthly estimates up to March 2022 while the estimates for April, May and June 2022 have been forecasted.
