Unemployment fell again in January, dropping down to 6.1 per cent, as the economy continues to move closer to regaining full employment. This is the lowest rate of unemployment since May 2008, when a figure of 5.9 per cent was recorded.

Figures just published by the Central Statistics Office show that unemployment stood at 6.1 per cent in January 2018, down from 6.2 per cent in December 2017, and from 7.4 per cent in January 2017.

The seasonally adjusted number of persons unemployed was 143,700 in January 2018, down from 146,700 when compared to the December 2017 figure and a decrease of 28,600 when compared to January 2017.


In January, the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 6.5 per cent for males, down from 6.6 per cent in December 2017 and down from 7.5 per cent in January 2017, while the rate for females stood at 5.6 per cent, down from 5.8 per cent in December 2017 and down from 7.3 per cent in January 2017.

Youth unemployment stood at 13.7 per cent in January, down from 13.8 per cent in December 2017.

Last week the Central Bank asserted that it expects to see an additional 89,000 jobs created in the Irish economy over the next two years, bringing total employment to a record 2.3 million. This would see the unemployment rate drop to just over 5 per cent next year.

Irish economy growing three times faster than any other European country
Headline growth last year is estimated to have been 7.3% - EU Commission

The economy grew by 7.3 per cent last year, three times faster than the wider euro area, according to new EU Commission estimates. The surge, driven by the activities of multinational companies operating here, would make the Republic the fastest-growing country in the EU.

Thanks Leo

Assuming the courts and regulator assure you of your rights the only people that should be concerned are strategic defaulters and genuine cases of people that cannnot afford their mortgage

There is an upside for the housing shortage potentially but those guys are chasing votes

Ireland fastest growing economy in European Union again with growth of 7.8%
Updated / Thursday, 15 Mar 2018 12:28
The Irish economy is the EU's fastest-growing economy for the fourth year in a row

By Sean Whelan
Economics Correspondent

The economy grew by 7.8% of GDP last year, according to preliminary estimates from the Central Statistics Office, making it the European Union's fastest-growing economy for the fourth year in a row.

Measured by GNP, the economy grew by 6.6% in 2017, the CSO said.

The CSO said that Modified Domestic Demand - a new measure used in Ireland to remove the distorting effects of foreign multinational companies - showed growth of 3.9%.

This suggests that the wider economy is feeling little initial impact from Brexit.

Today's figures show that Personal Consumption Expenditure grew by 1.9%. This is regarded as an important barometer of the performance of the domestic economy.

Consumer spending on goods increased by 4.6%, while spending on services was marginally negative at -0.1%.

The CSO said that industrial output grew by 8.9%. In the ICT sector output increased by 16.8%, while financial and insurance output fell slightly, down by 0.7%.

Capital investment showed a drop of 22.3% last year, driven by a lower level of Intellectual Property imports when compared with the exceptionally high level of such imports in 2016.

The country's balance of payments recorded a strong surplus of €37.1 billion, or 12.5%, of GDP.

This compared to a surplus of €9.1 billion in 2016, and €28.6 billion in 2015. The series was also affected by the large level of IP imports in 2016.

The relevance of using GDP as an accurate measure for such an open economy as the Irish economy was called into question when 2015 growth figures were adjusted up after a massive revision to the stock of capital assets related to the large multinational sector here.

While other more stable data point to very strong growth in the real economy, last year net exports were flattered greatly by the absence of large imports of intellectual property and aircraft leasing activity, which have skewed data in the past.

That pushed GDP up 10.9% year-on-year in the third quarter, revised slightly higher today.

This meant annual growth stood at 8.4% in the final three months of the year.

The economy expanded by 3.2% on a quarterly basis from October to December, compared with 4.8% in the previous quarter.

Ireland has rebounded from an economic crash a decade ago that pushed it into an international bailout in 2010, and the momentum has continued into this year with unemployment falling to 6.1% from a peak of 16% during the the crisis.

Data yesterday showed that employment - which analysts say is the cleanest gauge of Irish growth - was just shy of the 2007 peak at 2.23 million at the end of 2017 following a sharp rise in jobs growth in the fourth quarter.

Commenting on today's figures, Merrion economist Alan McQuaid said that the latest GDP numbers are very positive, especially when one allows for the distortions of intellectual property on the economy.

"Looking ahead to this year, GDP figures will continue to be impacted by IPP and aircraft leasing. We expect lower overall GDP growth in 2018, but still a very healthy 5-6%. More importantly, underlying growth will probably be around 3-4%," the economist said.
