This Annual Report presents information on the number of products which were produced in 2018, including new products not listed on the Work Programme for 2018, statistical innovations released during the year and also which products listed on the Work Programme for 2018 which were not produced.

Confidence in the quality and independence of official statistics is crucial as Ireland continues to use the information and insight provided by the CSO to guide economic and social development. With the publication of the annual CSO Work Programme and Annual Report the CSO is complying with Principle 1.5 of the European Statistics Code of Practice on Professional Independence which states:

"The statistical work programmes are published and periodic reports describe progress made",

In the Annual Statistical Work Programme 2018, the products were divided into the following six main themes with twenty-five associated sub-themes:

People and Society; Labour Market and Earnings; Business Sectors; Economy; General Statistical Publications; Environment.

The structure of the progress report matches the breakdown by theme and subtheme.
