Questions (193)

Peadar Tóibín

Question:

193. Deputy Peadar Tóibín asked the Taoiseach if he will provide the number of jobs lost by sector; and the number of jobs created by sector for each region since 2007. [7883/13]

View answer

Written answers (Question to Taoiseach)

The exact information requested by the Deputy is not available. The Quarterly National Household Survey (QNHS) is the official source of estimates of employment in the State. In line with EU requirements the QNHS collects sector of employment according to the standard EU classification (NACE). The table below shows the number of persons employed in quarter 2 of each year from 2007 to 2012 and the overall change over the period classified by NACE sector as published by the CSO.

It must also be noted that the table shows the overall number of persons employed at the given points in time. Changes in this stock level cannot be directly interpreted as being a number of jobs created as it is the net change occurring which will be impacted by both new jobs created and jobs lost in the sector in question. Estimates of the number of jobs created or lost at the regional level cannot be derived from available data sources.

Persons aged 15 and over in employment (ILO) classified by region and NACE Rev.2 Economic Sector, Quarter 2 2007-Quarter 2 2012.

Data may be subject to future revision;
Data may be subject to sampling or other survey errors, which are greater in respect of smaller values or estimates of change;
Reference period: q1=Jan-Mar, q2=Apr-Jun, q3=Jul-Sep, q4=Oct-Dec;
* Estimates for numbers of persons or averages where there are less than 30 persons in a cell are not produced as estimates are too small to be considered reliable;
Parentheses [ ] indicate where there are 30-49 persons in a cell, estimates are considered to have a wider margin of error and should be treated with caution;
