Average Income Highest in Dublin Region in 2013

Figure 1 Disposable Income per Person Percentage Deviation from State Average

Of the eight regional authority areas, the Dublin region had the highest average disposable income per person in 2013. At €20,885 it was 11.6%  higher than the State figure of €18,707 and approximately 0.9% lower than the figure of €21,072 (revised) for 2012.  Of  the remaining seven regions, only the Mid West,  at  €19,168  (€19,514 in 2012) had an average disposable income per person  higher  than the State average  (2.5%  in 2013 and  2.9%  in 2012). The Border  region with €16,610  and  the  Midland  region with €17,052  fared  worst  among the eight regions at approximately 11 and  9 per cent   respectively  below the State average.

The gap between the maximum and minimum value of disposable income per person per region, increased  from  €4,127  in 2012  (revised)  to €4,275  in 2013,  due to  Dublin regional incomes decreasing  by  €187 (0.9%)   while those  of  the lowest region, Border,  decreased  more  by  €335  (1.9%). See  Table 1.

Dublin remained the only region with higher per capita disposable income than the State average during the entire 2004-2013 period while the Midland, Border and West regions  have continuously  earned less than the State average.

Viewed from this longer term perspective (i.e. from 2004 onwards) the divergence in income between the regions and Dublin was at its lowest in 2010 but has continued to widen in  2011,  2012 and 2013.

Greater uncertainty at county level

While the county figures involve uncertainty they do provide a useful indication of the degree of variability at county level.  Dublin,  Limerick  and Cork  are the only counties where per capita disposable income exceeded the state average in 2013.

At the other end of the spectrum, some  counties  have never had per capita disposable  income greater  than the State average  during the entire period  2004  to 2013.  

Primary income plays a major role

Adding social transfers to primary income and subtracting off income taxes and social insurance contributions, results in disposable income. In the counties of  Dublin,  Kildare,  Meath , Wicklow and Cork, primary income exceeded disposable income in 2013  (see  Table 1). These are the counties with the highest  employment  rates as indicated in the results of  the  2011 Census.

Tables and preliminary estimate for 2014

Tables 1 to 8 show the county income information and tables 9 to 18a show regional Gross Value Added (GVA) information.  This year a new Table 1a has been introduced. It is intended as an estimate for 2014 and is consistent with the corresponding preliminary state aggregates in the National Income and Expenditure (NIE) 2014 tables.  These 2014 results have also been incorporated into the yearly comparison tables 3 to 8 and GVA  tables 9 to 14a where appropriate. 

Tables 15 and beyond do not contain any results for 2014 as the underlying source data needed is,  as yet,  not of sufficient robustness.

Background Notes

Introduction

Household income data were first published in 2000 (Household Incomes Regions and Counties 1991-1997 – Pn 8218) and the publication included a detailed description of the methodology used to estimate the regional values of the income components. Since then, results have been issued on an annual basis.

Regional accounts were first published in 1996 (Regional Accounts 1991 – Pn 3232). They were in respect of 1991 and a full description of the methodology used was included. A further set of accounts in respect of 1993 was published in 1997 with some additional methodological details. Results have been published annually since.

Revisions 

Revisions to national accounts data published in National Income and Expenditure 2014 have been carried through into these tables, as is the usual practice.

NACE  

Tables 15 to 18a provide GVA for the regions broken down into three main sectors of the economy. In former releases these sectors were defined as in the publication ‘National Income and Expenditure 20yy’ (NIE 20yy) and corresponded with the national classification system of industries used in National Accounts at the time. Since the 2009 release (consistent with NIE 2010) the sectors have been revised to correspond with the NACE Rev.2 classification system. The main effect of the NACE Rev.2 (re)classification, on the three sectors delineated in tables 15 to 18a, is that the Publishing Industry (including the publishing of software) has been reclassified from the Manufacturing sector to the Services sector. This results in the Services sector accounting for a larger proportion of total GVA compared to former releases. Similarly, the Manufacturing sector accounts for a smaller proportion of GVA than in former releases.

The more significant aggregates in all tables in these accounts (e.g. gross value added, compensation of employees) are compiled internally according to the NACE classification system. Again the NACE Rev.2 system has been used compared to the NACE Rev.1 system in earlier releases. The retrospective data for the years 2003 to 2011 have also been recalculated using NACE Rev.2. This inevitably gives rise to some revisions to the retrospective series.

Disposable Household Income

Is calculated in three steps;

Primary Income

Household Primary Income is defined for National Income purposes as follows:

Compensation of employees (i.e. Wages and Salaries, Benefits in kind,

Employers’ social insurance contributions)

plus

Income of self-employed

plus

Rent of dwellings (including imputed rent of owner-occupied dwellings)

plus

Net interest and dividends

The last component is a net item, which implies that payments by households of interest are deducted in deriving primary income.

Total Income

Total income is defined as:

Primary income from above

plus

Social benefits

plus

Other current transfers

Disposable Income

Disposable income is defined as follows:

Total income

minus

Current taxes on income (e.g. Income taxes, other current taxes)

minus

Social insurance contributions (e.g. Employers’, employees’, self-employed, etc.)

National Income

The estimates for the State for the different components of household income have already been published in the National Income and Expenditure Report 2014 (NIE 2014). The other current transfer payments to and from households are included in this release on a net basis with social benefits.

 Per Capita Incomes

The CSO publishes population estimates annually at regional level but not at county level. County populations for 2005 to 2014 used in this report have been estimated by applying the year to year changes at regional level, following the Censuses of 2006 and 2011, to the counties within these regions and are consistent with the national population estimates submitted to Eurostat.

Statistical Discrepancy

The official level of GDP is taken to be the average of the independently compiled Income and Expenditure estimates. The resulting balancing item, which is half of the difference between the two estimates, is called the Statistical Discrepancy. This must be added to the income components in tables 1 and 2 to derive Total Household Income.

GDP by Region

Gross Value Added

Gross Value Added (GVA) at basic prices is a measure of the value of the final goods and services produced in a region (less the materials and services used which come from outside the region) priced at the value which the producers received minus any taxes payable and plus any subsidies receivable as a consequence of their production or sale. GVA differs from household income in three main respects.

  • Firstly, GVA includes the total profits of companies. Company profits arising in the State, which accrue to non-residents, are considerable.
  • Secondly, the workforce that produces the GVA in a region may not live there and may bring their incomes home to a neighbouring region in which they will be included in household incomes.
  • Thirdly, personal income includes items such as social welfare benefits and factor incomes from abroad, which are not included in GVA.

(Note: GDP and GVA are the same concept i.e. they measure the value of the goods and services (or part thereof) which are produced within a region or country. GDP is valued at market prices and hence includes taxes charged and excludes the value of subsidies provided. GVA at basic prices on the other hand excludes product taxes and includes product subsidies – see table 14).

Valuation

Value added is firstly calculated at factor cost, which includes all subsidies and excludes all taxes. Conversion to a valuation at basic prices is achieved by subtracting overhead subsidies and adding overhead taxes. Conversion to market prices is then obtained by subtracting product subsidies and adding product taxes (see table 14). Most of the tables in this report on GVA are based on GVA at basic prices. However tables 15a to 18a are based on GVA at factor cost. All the results in this release are based on the  ESA 2010 system of accounts which came into effect in 2014 and is now in use throughout the European Union. This change of definitions has resulted in significant step increases in GVA/GDP at state and regional levels (please see http://cso.ie/shorturl.aspx/233 for a detailed explanation).

EU Averages

The indices of GVA per person, in relation to the EU28=100, for years 2004 to 2013 shown in table 11 are based on the relevant position of Ireland as given on the Eurostat website.

Regions

The regional classifications in this release are based on the NUTS (Nomenclature of Territorial Units) classification used by Eurostat. The regions for which the accounts have been compiled are the eight Regional Authority NUTS3 regions. The Mid East region (Kildare, Meath and Wicklow) and the Dublin region are affected by a substantial proportion of their workforce living in one region and commuting to work in another. It is therefore more meaningful to combine these two regions. The definition of the regions is outlined below. Figures have also been shown for the two overall NUTS2 regions i.e. “Border, Midland and Western” region and “Southern and Eastern” region.
