The Central Statistics Office publication, “Census 2016 Profile 5 – Homeless Persons in Ireland", is the fifth thematic report from Census 2016. The report gives insight into homelessness and includes topics such as the sex, age, martial status, education, work, health and nationality of the homeless population.
The Residential Property Price Index (RPPI) is designed to measure the change in the average level of prices paid by households for residential properties sold in Ireland. The RPPI specifically excludes non-household purchases, non-market purchases and self-builds (i.e. where the land is purchased separately). The index is mix-adjusted to allow for the fact that different types of property are sold in different months.
It includes cash purchases of property and detailed locational characteristics of dwellings. In addition, a range of additional indicators measuring the volume, value, average price and median price of residential property in Ireland are also included. These indicators are broken down by the characteristics of the buyer, the seller, the dwelling and geographical location. The RPPI is split into two higher level geographical areas. These are Dublin and the Rest of Ireland (i.e. Ireland excluding Dublin). Both house and apartment sub-indices, as well as an all dwelling index, are provided for each of these areas.
The Central Statistics Office publication, “Census 2016 Profile 4 - Households and Familes”, is the the latest of the eleven Census 2016 profile reports. The report shows that there were 1,218,370 families in the State on Census Night, an increase of 3.3% since 2011. The number of children per family remained unchanged at 1.38 children since the 2011 census.
This profile report on Households and Families examines the family situations and living arrangements of the Irish population in April 2016. It provides a wealth of information and analysis on topics such as marital status, same sex civil partnerships and the different types and sizes of family composition and households.
The Central Statistics Office publication, “Trade Statistics April 2017”, provides data on the movement of goods, exports and imports, between countries. Trade in Goods statistics in this publication are a combination of Customs-based non-EU trade statistics and the Intrastat survey of Irish traders involved in trade with other EU member states.
