About Us

The Dublin Economic Monitor is a joint initiative on behalf of the four Dublin local authorities to track developments in the capital’s economy.

While there is significant information available on developments in the national economy, the Monitor is intended to address the absence of a regular bulletin on trends in the Dublin economy. It will be of particular interest to all those doing business in Dublin or considering locating here.

A key objective of the Monitor is to develop and publish new data series each quarter to increase our understanding of the performance of the Dublin economy. It involves collaboration with IHS MARKIT to develop a Dublin Purchasing Manager Index (PMI). The Monitor also includes the Mastercard SpendingPulse to deliver unique insights for consumer and tourism spending in Dublin.

The Dublin City Region (i.e. the 4 Dublin local authorities combined) plays a pivotal role in the economy of Ireland and it is important that its performance is properly tracked.

Co-ordinated by Dublin City Council, the Monitor reflects the enhanced role of local authorities in the area of economic development and enterprise support, in line with the local government reform programme.

The Monitor is overseen by Juliet Passmore, Dublin City Council and produced by Grant Thornton and Packed.House.

We hope you find the Monitor useful and would welcome any feedback by getting in contact.
