Statistical output areas
Division of the population into 42 output areas covering the entire country, with approx. 7,500 persons per area. The population count varies between 4,000 and 14,000 inhabitants.
Current activity status
'Current activity status' is the current relationship of a person to economic activity, based on a reference period of one month during November 2011. For a small subset, where available, the activity status was based on the economic activity of the person on the reference date of November 30th, 2011.
In ascribing a single activity status to each person, priority is given to the status of 'employed' in preference to 'unemployed', and to the status of 'unemployed' in preference to 'not economically active'.
In lieu of using the age of 15 years on the reference date as the national minimum age for economic activity, persons who turned 15 years of age in the reference year or younger were defined as being under the minimum age for economic activity, this being the criterion for attending mandatory elementary school at the reference date.
Country of citizenship
Citizenship is defined as the particular legal bond between an individual and his/her State, acquired by birth or naturalisation, whether by declaration, option, marriage or other means according to the national legislation.
A person with two or more citizenships is allocated to only one country of citizenship, to be determined in the following order of precedence:
1. reporting country; or
2. if the person does not have the citizenship of the reporting country: other EU Member State;
3. if the person does not have the citizenship of another EU Member State: other country outside the European Union.
'EU Member State' means a country that is a member of the European Union on 1 January 2011.
