    Default June Live Register

    The seasonally adjusted June live register rose 11400 to 413500.The standardised unemployment rate rises to 11.9%.
    http://www.cso.ie/releasespublicatio...rrent/lreg.pdf

    PS There may be a significant error in the seasonally adjusted figures for June/July that will not be picked up until September. This is because the seasonally adjusted method of analysis will only categorise teachers and other education workers signing on in these months as only seasonally unemployed outside the school year although and we do know a significant number will not actually be taken back on in September in both the public and private sector.

    In the Leader's questions of today there was reference to a statement of Tom Parlon of the CIF that another 100,000 construction workers may be added to the live register this year due to changes in the capital program. Does anyone have any more on this? This would raise unemployment to close to 550,000-600,000 by the end of the year, if true.

    There is certainly another 100k building jobs to go. But by the end of 2010 rather 2009. For example an estimated 55k are yet to go in civil engineering as the roads programme grinds to a halt over the next 18months and the only new project approved to start in 2009 is the Castleisland by-pass, which is a relatively small job.

    So thats a 2.8% rise from last month? Even a 1.5% rise each month until December will see unemployment at 20% for Year End. F&!K!

    I think the Newlands Cross upgrade has been given the green light as well. But again, this is small beans really

    in any other year, it would be a record increase

    your post is the equivalent of a doctor saying "the patient is losing blood less rapidly, the end is near"

    Even some of those of us with jobs have very little to do, thats why I'm contributing to this site at this time of the day

    the situation is much worse than they are letting on- people are emigrating, returning home, staying on in college, stayin at home to mind the kids and so on which is keepin the figures at some sort of acceptable level. It's a disaster zone and God knows when it will turn- 2 years I'd say

    And what about the self employed that are not appearing on the stats?
