The official measure of Ireland's imports is produced by the Central Statistics Office. The value of goods and service imports on a percentage basis with a breakdown by country of destination is shown in the Statistical Yearbook of Ireland. The table is from the latest edition which contains data for 2016. For Balance of Payments and National Accounts purposes the data include conceptual adjustments for goods imports which relate to the recognition of a change of economic ownership taking place. The volumes of both goods and services imports are not available.
