Written answers (Question to Employment)

The measurement of unemployment throughout the country is the responsibility of the Central Statistics Office which is under the auspices of my colleagues in the Department of the Taoiseach.

I am however informed that at the end of June there were 547 recipients of a jobseeker's payment in the 18 to 25 years of age cohort in County Wicklow.
