Dublin Economic Monitor, Analysing Dublin’s Performance

The Dublin City Region plays an increasingly important role in the economy of Ireland and it is important that its performance is properly tracked.

The Dublin Economic Monitor is a joint initiative on behalf of the four Dublin local authorities to track developments in the capital’s economy.

Project Activities

Managed by Dublin City Council’s Economic Development and Local Enterprise Office, the Monitor is intended to address the absence of a regular bulletin on trends in the Dublin economy. It is of particular interest to all those doing business in Dublin or considering locating here.

The Monitor includes the Mastercard SpendingPulse which delivers unique insights for consumer and tourism spend. In collaboration with Mastercard, the SpendingPulse gives timely insights based on factors like retail sales, ecommerce, and household goods expenditure to give a wider look at Dublin’s economy.


The key objective of the Monitor is to develop and publish new data series to increase our understanding of the performance of the Dublin economy. Making up-to-date economic information freely accessible will support open and transparent local government, allow businesses to improve their planning, contribute to the region’s economic vibrancy and enhance our understanding of how Dublin’s economy works.
