The department has been seeking an improved breakdown in relation to the different elements within the overall data and initiated a process of collaboration with ESB Networks and the Central Statistics Office to obtain additional, more granular data from their datasets some time ago. Arising from this development, the department has agreed that ESB Networks no longer needs to supply the monthly connections dataset to the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage as the dataset being supplied to the CSO is more detailed. The CSO published a new measure of New Dwelling Completions on 14 June 2018. This release is available in full on the CSO website.
The CSO also publish a range of other statistics in the Construction domain.
