The Dublin Economic Monitor

Printer-friendly version

The Dublin Economic Monitor is a joint initiative on behalf of the four Dublin Local Authorities, co-ordinated by the City Council. The commissioning of the Monitor represents the further manifestation of the enhanced role of Local Authorities in the area of economic development and enterprise support, in line with the local government reform programme. The Dublin City Region (4 Dublin local authorities combined) plays an increasingly important role in the economy of Ireland and it is important that its performance is properly tracked. We believe that the Monitor will be of particular interest to all those living and doing business in Dublin or considering locating here. We are delighted to work with DKM Economic Consultants who have been engaged to produce the Monitor, with KBC/ESRI to develop Dublin consumer sentiment data and with MARKIT to develop a Dublin Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI).

You can now sign up to our quarterly mailing list to ensure that you are notified of future releases of the monitor:

Seventh Issue of "Dublin Economic Monitor" Launched

Dublin's Economic Performance Broadly Stable, despite Rising Uncertainty

The seventh issue of the Dublin Economic Monitor has been launched today.  A joint initiative of the four Dublin local authorities, the Monitor looks exclusively at the Dublin region, and tracks 15 key economic indicators.  It captures data from the height of the boom to the economic crash and the subsequent recovery.  Most of these indicators show that Dublin’s economic performance is broadly improving, but challenges related to housing and the unfolding consequences of Brexit remain problematic.  This issue of the Economic Monitor also contains a report by SOLAS Labour Market Economist, Jasmina Behan, on growth and demand in the Dublin labour market, and a special feature by the CEO of Keelings, Caroline Keeling, on the economic contribution and outlook for the Capital’s agri-food sector. See link:
