3/2/2012: Ireland's Jobs Creation & Destruction data

CSO recently published its analysis of the labour market looking into jobs creation and destruction in the economy - a new study, currently in the 'experimental' stage and a very welcome addition to CSO tools, in my view.

Here's the core data:
Per charts (source for the chart is CSO):

  • Job creation has increased slightly from 9% in 2009 to 12% in 2010
  • Job destruction has fallen significantly from 28% in 2009 to 18% in 2010 
  • Net job creation (job creation less job destruction) remained negative at – 6% in 2010
Note to CSO - a table with data would be good - or at least labeling of values in the chart. And do please continue with this analysis.
