In terms of home ownership, the authoritative data in this regard is the data published as part of each census of population carried out by the Central Statistics Office.

The most recent census undertaken, Census 2016, reported that 67.6% of households owned their own home, with or without a loan or mortgage.  This compared to a rate of 69.7% in 2011.
