People outside Dublin don’t have much disposable income

People in Dublin have the highest average disposable income in the country.

New figures from the Central Statistics Office show a significant gap between the capital and elsewhere.


People in the Dublin region had just over 23,200 euro in disposable income in 2015.

That’s around 15 per cent higher than the national average of 20,300.

But only the Mid East at 20,441 and the Mid West 20,353 had averages close to that.

The Border region is bottom of the table at 17,600.

After that was the Midland region at 17,800 – well below the national average.

Only Dublin, Limerick and Kildare had average disposable incomes above that level in 2015.
