Where does the data come from?

The data behind the Constituency Dashboards is taken from the Central Statistics Office (CSO) Census 2016 releases. The Dashboards reflect changes to Dáil constituencies on foot of the Constituency Commission Report 2017, Dáil and European Parliament Constituencies.

The L&RS has selected indicators thought to be of most interest to Members.


While we have made every effort to ensure the data behind the Constituency Dashboards is correct, there is a possibility that errors have been made. If you would like to bring anything to our attention, please email us.

Library & Research Service

The Constituency Dashboards are produced by the Oireachtas Library & Research Service (L&RS). The L&RS provides information and research services to Members of the Oireachtas.
