    We need to radically change every system that has enabled the wholesale destruction of the Irish landscape, rural and urban. There is no time for incremental step by step measures. The systems have failed utterly and the only hope for a real recovery requires the rule book to be torn up completely.

    CSO figures just issued record that there are 442,417 people on the live register.

    This is an monthly fall of 24,506, and an increase of 22,563 year-on-year, representing an annual increase of 5.4%.

    The current rate of unemployment thus stands at 13.7% for this month, compared to 13.8% for last month and 13.2% for the second quarter of 2010.

    Plus all the people on training courses. Plus people hiding on 'disability allowance'. Plus out of work self employed people who get nothing.

    Actual unemployment is about 20%.

    The Live Register is not designed to measure unemployment. It includes part-time workers (those who work up to three days a week), seasonal and casual workers entitled to Jobseekers Benefit or Allowance. Unemployment is measured by the Quarterly National Household Survey and the latest seasonally adjusted figure, for April to June 2010, is 284,500 persons unemployed.
    A far more significant economic indicator is the number in employment - which fell by only 7000 in that quarter.

    Was the original thread title of a drop of 5,400 too positive?

    And where has the muppets (DS) thread of a rise in the register gone?

    DC i agree with tonic on this (God Help Me!!!). The total LR figure is meaningless for most people so my original title should be reinstated. The headline is the fall of 5,400

    I#d like CS to explain his aboprtive thread where he stated it increased by 99. You there?

    Come on DC - the thread titles highlight the rise when there is a rise and should therefore highlight the fall in the number (notwithstanding the fact that the live register is a meaningless number anyway and doesn't actually reflect the "unemployed").

    The old bias showing again DC !

    Demand for higher education remains very strong with a record 71,843 people applying for third-level places this year, according to analysis of CAO applications.

    The analysis found the total number of applicants reached a record high of 71,843 this year, increasing 6.2% from 2009 in addition to a 6% increase in the previous year
