Written answers (Question to Taoiseach)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 2 and 3 together.

The exact information requested by the Deputy is not available. Annual structural business statistics are compiled from three surveys conducted by the Central Statistics Office (CSO): the Census of Industrial Production, the Annual Services Inquiry, and the Building and Construction Inquiry. A breakdown between Irish-owned and foreign-owned enterprises is available from the Census of Industrial Production for the years 1991 to 2018, from the Annual Services Inquiry for 2008 to 2018, and from the Building and Construction Inquiry for 2016 to 2018.

Information from these three surveys on the number of enterprises, employment, gross value added, and wages and salaries is set out in the following three tables, for the years available with a breakdown between Irish-owned and foreign-owned enterprises.
