Intro Text 

The Dublin Economic Monitor is a joint initiative on behalf of the four Dublin local authorities, which dlr are delighted to contribute towards in order to improve the lives of our citizens. Please see the the most recent infographic on the economic monitors here.

The Monitor represents the enhanced role of local authorities and our support and contribution in the area of economic development and enterprise support.


The most recent Dublin Economic Monitor has been published, and features the following key points that are reflective of Q2, 2017:

  • Dublin's unmployment rate dipped to a nine year low of 6.1%,
  • Public transport trips continue to grow strongly to reach a new peak of over 52 million passenger journeys,
  • Passenger arrivals at Dublin airport maintained upward momentum over the quarter,
  • Housing completions in Dublin increased to over 540 in May 2017 and will be expected to rise further following the increased level of housing commencencements.

The Dublin city region plays an increasingly important role in the economy of Ireland and it is important that performance is properly tracked. 

Take a look at the Dublin Dashboard which provides citizens, public sector workers and companies with real-time information, time-series indicator data, and interactive maps about all aspects of Dublin.
