CSO: Reduction In The Number Of Kildare People "Staying Local".

: 25/01/2021 - 11:34

There's been a reduction in the number of people in Kildare staying within 10 kilometres of their homes.

The Central Statistics Office says, in the week to January 8th, 66% of people in the county were staying local.

By the following week, that reduced to 64.5%.

This is below the national average, where slightly over two thirds of people remained within 10Km of their homes in that period.

The CSO says "The Staying Local Indicator is based on statistical analysis of anonymised, aggregated, mobile phone activity records."
