47,962 PPSN issued to individuals from Ukraine

A total of 47,962 Personal Public Service Numbers (PPSNs) were issued by the week ending 7 August to individuals from Ukraine under the Temporary Protection Directive.

Women aged 20 and over account for 47% of arrivals to date, while those aged 0-19 (both male and female) account for 36%, according to CSO data.

The highest percentage of those arriving (38% or 18,079 individuals) were categorised as 'one parent with children'.

As of 7 August, of the arrivals that attended employment support events arranged by Intreo Public Employment Services, 67% were noted with English language proficiency being a challenge in securing employment.

Of the 15,627 who attended an employment talk, 11,251 had recorded previous occupations, with "professionals" being the largest group at 33%.

Education level

Of the 11,999 persons where the highest level of education was recorded, 68% had achieved an NFQ equivalent to level seven or higher.

Based on administrative data currently available to the CSO, of the arrivals from Ukraine aged 18 and older, 89% showed activity in administrative data after 30 June.

Statistician Karola Graupner said that data on barriers to work, previous and current employment, and education level is included in the release.

Approximately 90% of the most recent social protection payments to arrivals from Ukraine were paid by Electronic Information Transfer (EIT), where the recipient must attend a post office to collect the payment personally.

Using the local post office address as a proxy for place of residence, North Inner City in Dublin had the highest number of associated arrivals from Ukraine at 1,542.

Analysis also shows that the rate per 100 of the population ranges across all LEAs in the country from 0.04% to 7.19%.

The LEA with the highest rate is Ennistimon in Clare.
