Written answers (Question to Taoiseach)

Statistics on emigration are included in the CSO's annual Population and Migration Estimates release. The principal source of information for the estimation of annual migration flows, incorporating both emigration and immigration, is the Labour Force Survey (LFS), formally the Quarterly National Household Survey (QNHS). The latest release was published in August 2017 and shows that an estimated 64,800 left Ireland in the year to April 2017. In the previous year to April 2016 there were 66,200 outward migrants.
