The Central Statistics Office publication, Foreign Direct Investment in Ireland 2015, presents experimental research which adds value to pre-existing Foreign Direct Investment statistics and has been created in response to the large increase in Foreign Direct Investment in Ireland in 2015. As a result of this increase, when measured in terms of FDI, Ireland became one of the most globalised countries in the world.
Foreign Direct Investment in Ireland 2015 contains a number of indicators which assess the impact of FDI in Ireland. This publication uses data from the CSO Business Register, the Balance of Payments surveys and administrative data sources. It presents indicative figures for the return on FDI, FDI associated employment and average FDI wages. It also provides an estimate of Greenfield FDI and develops the context for Ireland’s quarterly FDI figures.
The Central Statistics Office publication, Historical Earnings 1938-2015, has compiled available average earnings data and presented them in as coherent a series as possible.
Earnings statistics have been produced in Ireland since the early nineteen hundreds, published in the Irish Trade Journal and Statistical Bulletin. Broad Industrial average earnings were first published in 1938. These statistics focused on Industrial employees in the Industry sector, where the majority of non-agricultural employment was based. Since then additional data has been published, including more occupational and sectoral categories.
The Central Statistics Office publication, “Trade Statistics January 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.
