The CSO have published the Statistical Yearbook of Ireland 2013. The 20 chapters provide a useful compilation of the broad range of measures produced by the CSO. The naming of Chapter Nine suggests we have a way to go before we “break the vicious cycle”!
The CSO have also issued the October update of the Live Register which continues to show a decline. In the SA series it can be seen that most of this drop has been among males.
Separately, Eurostat have published updates for unemployment and inflation. In September, Euroarea unemployment remained at 12.2%, while the flash estimate of October HICP inflation shows a drop to 0.7%.
