The CSO and NISRA have joined forces to produce a fascinating census of the whole island covering the period up to 2011. Given that both the Republic and Northern Ireland (as part of the UK) were conducting censuses within weeks of each other three years ago, the two statistical agencies decided that it might be enlightening and interesting to combine the results to give an overall view of the economic, social and political situation of the island as a whole.

Some of the things which jump out at me:


  • Northern Ireland, particularly along the Antrim and North Down coasts, is a lot older than the rest of Ireland.
  • The Republic's share of the island's population is back to the highs last seen a hundred years ago after losing relative ground to the North
  • Divorce is much more common in NI and with that lone parent households.
  • The North is a lot more irreligious than the Republic outside of Dublin, Cork and Galway
The full report can be perused here.

I am making a comparison of population growth in large cities in Europe. To me it is very hard to find figures of Dublin. Can anybody help me with this?

I am especially interested in de population size now and in 1995, but I would be very happy to see more.

Thanks!

I can't really help you at the moment but..

Are you looking for the population of Dublin county, greater Dublin or just the urban area?

I'm sure you can find results of the 1996 census online. Have you tried the CSO website?

That is a good question. I am looking for the figures on Dublin county.

For most cities it is possible to find data on an annual basis and I am collecting it for the years 1900-2014. So I hope to find more than just the census of 1996.
