Cork City Council has undertaken Employment and Land Use Survey in the City since the early 1970s. The information collected provides a basis for monitoring development and employment trends in the city. The 2016 survey of the 6000+ businesses and organisations in the City commenced in June and will be complete by August, with results being available sometime later in Autumn 2016.
The Employment and Landuse survey gives insight into changing economic trends for both the city as a whole and defined areas within it, such as the City Centre. There is no other source of this kind of comprehensive information on the city and is therefore an extremely valuable tool in the work of the section. In summary it gives information on employment activities in the City, job numbers, job locations, sectors experiencing growth or decline, number of new businesses and movement of businesses.
Key findings from the 2011 survey were as follows:
