Written answers (Question to Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation)

The information compiled by the Enterprise Development agencies does not include details of the types of jobs created in Cork. However, I can provide the Deputy with information regarding jobs in Enterprise Development agency-supported companies based in Cork, which are compiled in the Forfás Annual Employment Survey. Because the figures are compiled on an annualised basis, the figures for 2012 will not be available until the early part of 2013. The figures in respect of jobs created, in various sectors, in agency-supported companies in Cork in 2011 are set out in the table accompanying this reply. The Deputy may wish to consult with the Central Statistics Office as regards overall numbers of jobs created in Cork.
