The 2002 yearbook, which is the second edition of this report, was published on Wednesday 20 November.

This yearbook gives a comprehensive picture of Ireland in figures up to the year 2001. It contains 18 chapters of statistical tables and commentary, spanning a wide range of topics. The figures are taken from the CSO's surveys but also include a wide range of information compiled by other bodies. The report also includes, in an appendix, a range of statistics on Northern Ireland.

The Statistical Yearbook of Ireland is also available on the CSO website. This is a colourful, comprehensive and very informative publication and I congratulate the CSO on its production.
