This is the fifteenth issue of the annual Statistical Yearbook of Ireland (which replaced the former Statistical Abstract). The Yearbook contains information, tables, graphs and charts across a wide range of topics which present a comprehensive picture of Ireland today.

This is the second year that the Yearbook is available in electronic format only. We hope that the flexibility provided by this format will provide a more interactive experience for users. We intend to further develop this product and we would welcome any feedback that you may wish to provide through the contact details below.

The new format of the Yearbook sees the publication divided into six sections, each containing several related chapters. The sections are as follows:

The tables in the Yearbook were prepared during August 2015 and, in general, they contain details relating to the year 2014. Some of these results are provisional and are subject to revision. There are links to interactive tables on our StatBank throughout the publication. These will give you access to the most up to date information available.
All of the statistics published by the CSO are available free of charge on

The Central Statistics Office would like to thank other Government Departments and Organisations for their co-operation in supplying material for this Yearbook.
