Written answers (Question to Taoiseach)

The Quarterly National Household Survey (QNHS) is the official source of estimates of unemployment (International Labour Organisation - ILO) in the State. The latest unemployment data available for Ireland are for Q1 2017.

The latest corresponding EU 28 data available are for Q4 2016.

The table shows, for Ireland, the total number of unemployed persons (one year and over) together with the total number of unemployed persons for Q4 2016 and Q1 2017.

The table also includes the percentage share of all unemployed persons represented by those who are unemployed for one year and over for the same periods for Ireland, along with the corresponding percentage share for the EU 28 in respect of Q4 2016.
