129. Deputy Willie O’Dea asked the Taoiseach the number of jobless households by county, in tabular form. (Question 26857/17 asked on 20 Jun 2017)

The Taoiseach: The Quarterly National Household Survey (QNHS) is the official source of data for the jobless household indicator.

The indicator “People aged 18 - 59 years living in jobless households” is calculated as the share of persons aged 18 - 59 who are living in households where no one is in employment. Students aged 18 - 24 who live in households composed solely of students (persons who have indicated that their Principal Economic Status is Student) of the same age class are not included. The indicator “People aged 0 - 17 years living in jobless households” is calculated as the share of persons aged 0 - 17 who are living in households where no one is in employment.

Estimates for the jobless household indicator are produced by NUTS 3 Regions and are not available on a county basis.

The table below shows the proportion of all persons aged 0-59 living in jobless households classified by sex, age group and NUTS3 region in Q1 2017.
