StatCentral - The Portal to Ireland's Official Statistics

In Ireland, official statistics are those produced by the Central Statistics Office (CSO), along with government departments, agencies and other state bodies. Most of these are available on the web through a variety of websites and formats. The StatCentral portal provides standard documentation on recurring official statistics and links to where they can be found.

We are constantly working to improve our site and would value your comments or suggestions. (See Feedback above) If you experience any problems using our site please mail us at statcentral@cso.ie.

How to use the portal

The menu on the left is laid out in themes (such as People and Society) and subthemes (such as Population). Select a subtheme to get a list of statistics, and select a statistic to go to the documentation page for that statistic. From there you can link directly to the source website that hosts the statistic.

You can search this site by entering keywords into the Google-based search box above.
