The Central Statistics Office today has released the thematic “Business in Ireland 2015” e-publication. This publication outlines the key statistics for the Irish business economy in 2015. Business Demography data (largely based on administrative data from the Revenue Commissioners) are used to analyse the number of enterprises and employment across the five sectors of Industry, Construction, Distribution, Services and Financial & Insurance. This data is combined with the Structural Business surveys, which are run annually by CSO.
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.
