Department of An Taoiseach
Job Creation Data
The exact information requested by the Deputy is not available.
The Labour Force Survey (LFS) is the official source of estimates of employment in the State. The most recent figures available are for Q3 2018.
Due to methodology and sample size it is not possible to produce reliable Cavan, Monaghan and Meath County estimates from the LFS.
Estimates of employment however, are produced by NUTS 3 Regions.
The NUTS 3 Border region includes counties Cavan, Donegal, Leitrim, Monaghan and Sligo.
The NUTS 3 Mid-East region includes counties Kildare, Meath, Wicklow and Louth.
The table below shows the number of persons aged 15 years and over in employment classified by NUTS 3 Border and Mid-East regions in Q3 2017 and Q3 2018 and the annual change.
As the table shows the overall stock of persons employed at given points in time, the annual change which is calculated using these stock figures depends both on the number of jobs lost and jobs created over the period in question.
The LFS does not record whether a job is newly created.
