Default A great website for Irish financial statistics statusireland.com

I have just come across this website which is really excellent. Here are just some of the graphs

Irish house prices

Unemployment Rate

ISEQ Index

I can't believe that this site has been going since October 2008.

If the data is correct, then it's a superb site. Hard to imagine why the CSO with its resources don't have something like this. Great find and info like that is very interesting.....reminds me of a book I saw in the college library once upon a time "Statistics without tears"

I don't know who is behind the site, so it's hard to know if the data is correct or not. But it does give the source in any of the graphs I looked at, so you could check them.

Great site.
This chart showed what utter rubbish was spouted by the Public Sector unions about how their members had been left behind by the boom with salary increases of 180% over a 10 year period.

The average Garda earns 60k according to this. Considering the large number of new recruits in previous years this tells me that there are a considerable number of members on much higher salaries than this.

A new benchmarking excercise anyone?
