    Official stats on emigration due out on Tuesday

    By Noreen Bowden | September 17, 2009

    The Central Statistics Office has announced on its website that it will be releasing its annual population and migration stats this Tuesday. This is the annual report that gives the emigration figures up to April every year. At last we shall know to what extent the anecdotal evidence of rising emigration is reflected in the official figures.

    The figures are being released a little later than the last couple of years – perhaps the delay is due to the fact that this year, for the first time, the CSO has said that the nationality of outgoing migrants will be reported. This is a significant move as it will let us see to what extent any additional outflow is the result of migrants returning home, or to a third country.

    This information will be useful for those interested in such topics as our housing market, as additional downward pressure on population is likely to reduce demand further.
