1,938,900 jobs in Ireland

Good news all round it would seem from the Irish Central Statistics Office (CSO) Quarterly National Household Survey. According to the CSO, there was an annual increase in employment of 1.5% or 29,100 in the year to the fourth quarter of 2014, bringing total employment to 1,938,900. This compares with an annual increase in employment of 1.5% in the previous quarter and an increase of 3.3% in the year to Q4 2013.

This is welcome news that the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate decreased from to 10.4% from its peak of over 15% in 2012.
