Irish Jobless Rate at 5.5%
Ireland’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was at 5.5 percent in March of 2022, compared to the 5.2 percent rate in the prior month. Moreover, the Pandemic Unemployment Payment scheme ceased during the period, meaning the COVID-19 Adjusted Unemployment rate no longer exists as the Irish labor market transitions away from stimulus measures brought by the pandemic. The number unemployed rose by 8.2 percent to 146.4 thousand. The youth unemployment rate, measuring jobseekers aged 15-24, eased to 12.3 percent in March from an upwardly revised 12.7 percent in the previous month.

Irish Jobless Rate at 5.2%
Ireland’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was at 5.2 percent in February of 2022, unchanged from the downwardly revised rate in the prior month and holding constant for the sixth consecutive month. However, the COVID-19 Adjusted Measure of Unemployment could indicate a rate as high as 7 percent if all claimants of the Pandemic Unemployment Payment were classified as unemployment. This alternative measure eased from 7.8 percent in January and down from 27 percent in February of 2021. The youth unemployment rate, measuring jobseekers aged 15-24, eased to 12.6 percent from 13 percent in the previous month.
