SDG 5.5.2 Ireland by County 2017

On the official Government of Ireland SDG indicator website, SDG 5.5.2 indicators are not yet available. The Central Statistics Office of Ireland continues to improve their reporting on managers overall, IC_GEN_MGTL. The latest data published (in April, 2022) is from 2017.

(Data for senior female managers, IC_GEN_MGTN, is only available for the largest businesses who chose to report, thus making the sample non-representative.)
