Written answers (Question to Social)

The data requested by the Deputy, where available, is set out in the tables below. The data refers to recipients of the selected schemes in January 2021, while the earnings data relates to 2019. Due to the extended deadline for returns, earnings data in respect of the self-employed for 2019 may not be fully complete.

Caution should be exercised around the NACE sector details in particular. The NACE details refer to the NACE sector of the last known employer of the recipients, and the 2019 earnings reported here are not necessarily related to the sector of the last known employer. In the case of self-employed recipients, the sector of the last known employer may not reflect the sector of their self employment.

Earnings across the entire economy by NACE sectors are published quarterly by the Central Statistics Office at https://www.cso.ie/en/statistics/earnings/earningsandlabourcosts/ and at https://data.cso.ie/table/EHQ03
