My Department collates and publishes a wide range of housing statistics, the full range of which can be viewed on www.environ.ie. 6,112 houses have been completed up to end May 2010 and a more detailed breakdown by area is available on the website. Broad trends for construction activity, including housing, are contained in the annual Construction Industry Review and Outlook, an independent report prepared by DKM Economic Consultants which has been funded by my Department, and is also available on the web site.
