Employment and Landuse Survey 2016

The 2016 Employment and Landuse Survey of the 6,000+ businesses and organisations located in Cork City commenced in June.  The survey, which will run through August 2016, helps identify citywide changes and trends in employment.  The information helps establish policies to make the city a better place to live, work, and do business. It also provides information that supports applications for national and EU funding for the city.

Given that employment details are sensitive information for businesses, the information collected during the survey will not be shared with any other parties and will be treated in strictest confidence. Results of the survey will be released in aggregate form only, and individual enterprises will not be identified.  Enumerators calling door-to-door all have identification cards available for inspection.

The survey only takes a few minutes;  Cork City Council requests the cooperation and support of city businesses in carrying out this important survey.  Further details about the survey are available on Cork City Council web site ( under the ‘Economic Development’ section. Findings from the survey will be available later in 2016.  Any queries can be directed to or 021 492 4497.
