IT: Questioning the validity of the CSO QHNS

From The Irish Times, 27th May 2014


](CSO job figures come with a health warning – The Irish Times)

I have spoken with an statistician from the CSO previously and they mentioned that figures can, and on occasion are manipulated, within reasonable tolerances, to portray a certain point of view. However, I think what’s being suggested here is that the data are potentially just wrong, or at least unreliable for historical comparisons as the definition of what’s been measured has changed.
