News ›› CSO Ireland: Life in 1916 Ireland: Stories from statistics

The Central Statistics Office have produced a publication to mark the centenary of the 1916 Rising. We decided to commemorate this momentous occasion by searching for statistics from Ireland for the 1916 period which illustrated what life was like for people living 100 years ago. The report contains 72 tables on a wide variety of topics including population, births, marriages, deaths, education, crime, prices, transport and agriculture. We also have a chapter which gives a brief biography of  many of the people involved or associated with the Rising including their census reports. We have also included a section on notable people from the 1911 census. Find out more here.
