This is a new publication from the Central Statistics Office which analyses goods exports and imports data from the point of view of the activity and the size of the enterprises engaged in trade in goods. This differs from the traditional focus of trade statistics, which is on the products being traded. In other words, this publication deals with who is trading rather than what is being traded.
The Trade by Enterprise Characteristics data (TEC data) published here covers imports and exports data from 2013 to 2016 and gives information on the size profile of trading enterprises based on the number of employees, and also by six broad NACE activity categories. For each category the value of trade and the number of enterprises is given.
The Central Statistics Office publication, “Trade Statistics November 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.
The Central Statistics Office publication, “Higher Education Outcomes – Graduates of 2010-2014”, analyses the outcomes of graduates in terms of employment, re-enrolment in education, the industry sectors in which graduates work and their earnings over time.
The report is the result of a collaborative project between the CSO and the Higher Education Authority (HEA), and was carried out by matching graduation records with administrative data on employment, education and benefits. This approach enables a detailed analysis by Sex, Field of Study, NFQ Level and Degree Class.
