Live register figures virtually unchanged in September

IRELAND’S UNEMPLOYMENT RATE remained at 14.8 per cent in September, according to new figures from the Central Statistics Office
Seasonally adjusted live register figures show that a total of 400 people left the register – a figure the CSO deemed to be statistically insignificant.

When seasonal adjustments were removed, however, the figures signing on fell by almost 27,000 people.
The number of long-term claimants – those signing on for a year or more – has fallen for the first time since April.

The number of under 25s signing on is down by 7,172 in the last year – marking 27 consecutive months in which the number of claimants under 25 has fallen when compared to the figure from 12 months previously.
