425. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection the number of young persons under 25 years of age who are in receipt of the pandemic unemployment payment for six months or more by county in tabular form. [2996/22]
I propose to take Questions Nos. 414, 415 and 425 together.
Detailed statistics on the pandemic unemployment payment are published each week at my Department at gov.ie/dsp/statistics and at the national open data portal, data.gov.ie, including breakdowns by age group and by rate.
The detailed statistics requested by the Deputy in respect of those in receipt of the payment for more than six months are set out in Table 1 below. Statistics in respect of recipients of the PUP by rate of payment are set out in Table 2.
