The Labour Force Survey (LFS) is a household survey which provides quarterly statistics on employment and unemployment and is the official source of labour market estimates in the State.

The quarterly LFS labour market estimates are produced by NUTS-3 Regions (NUTS-3 is a geocode standard referencing the eight subdivisions of Ireland for statistical purposes). Due to the methodology and sample size of the survey it is not possible to produce reliable county estimates from the LFS. The most recent figures available from the LFS are for the first quarter (Q1) of 2019.

The quarterly LFS results include the following jobless household indicators. The indicator "Proportion of persons aged 18 - 59 years living in jobless households" is calculated as the share of persons aged 18 - 59 who are living in households where no one is in employment. Students aged 18-24 years who live in households composed solely of students (persons who have indicated that their Principal Economic Status is Student) of the same age class are not included. The indicator "Proportion of persons aged 0-17 years living in jobless households" is calculated as the share of persons aged 0 - 17 who are living in households where no one is in employment. The table below shows the LFS jobless household indicators classified by sex, age group and NUTS-3 region in Q1 2019.
