I propose to take Questions Nos. 49, 56 and 60 together.

The exact information requested by the Deputy is not available.

The Labour Force Survey (LFS) is the official source of employment estimates in the State. The most recent figures available are for Q3 2021.

The quarterly LFS employment estimates are produced by NUTS3 Regions (NUTS3 is a geocode standard referencing the eight subdivisions of Ireland for statistical purposes). Due to the methodology and sample size of the survey it is not possible to produce reliable county estimates from the LFS.

The NUTS3 Mid-West region includes counties Clare, Limerick and Tipperary.

Due to changes made under the 2014 Local Government Act, the current NUTS3 region LFS series is available from Q1 2012, see link to an Information Note published by the CSO which details these changes.

The table below shows the number of persons aged 15-89 years in employment in the Mid-West NUTS3 Region in the third quarter 2012 to 2021.
