The Database of Irish Historical Statistics

The Database of Irish Historical Statistics holds recurrent statistics for Ireland for the nineteenth and twentieth centuries collected from a variety of printed census sources.

It contains quantitative information, including decennial census data, emigration statistics, annual totals of births, deaths and marriages collected by the Registrar General, yearly statistics of agricultural production, poverty data from Poor Law records, and crime statistics. All population censuses from the first comprehensive Irish census in 1821 to the last not already in digital form in 1971 are included.

The holdings of the Database are based on the printed census returns, not the original enumerators’ books – many of which for the nineteenth century were destroyed by fire in 1922. The datasets do not, therefore, include information relating to individuals.
