Why have I chosen this data?
In order for me to answer part one; I must gauge what aspects of the Irish Labour Market I must analyse to provide an accurate statistical profile. ‘Whilst there is a wealth of data on the labour market, a number of studies are regarded as 'key.' The key individual aspects on the labour market are unemployment, the Population & relationships between health and labour market variables.’(Economic & Social Data Service)
‘Labour market statistics are designed to reflect the various aspects of labour market activity in your chosen country. Labour market statistics measure many different aspects of work and jobs and provide an insight into the economy.’ (http://www.statistics.gov.uk/hub/labour-market/index.html)
Employment & Unemployment Rates:
Unemployment rates are a good indication of how well a countries labour market is doing. Thompson (2003) states It is important to acknowledge that unemployed labour represents an integral element of the external labour market. People that are out of work but actively seeking employment, particularly those unemployed over a long period, tell us a great deal about the operation of the labour market. Over the past decade Ireland’s employment has decreased & unemployment rate has increased (see Fig.1 & Fig.2).
