Net emigration by Irish nationals in the period May 2009-April 2014, amounted to 124,000, according to estimates issued by the CSO on Tuesday.

In the period May 2013-April 2014, during 12 months of mainly jobs growth, 41,000 emigrated and 12,000 returned, giving a net loss of 29,200 compared with 35,200 in the previous year.

The CSO said that net outward migration in the year to April 2014 is estimated to have fallen to 21,400, a dip of 11,700 on the previous year’s figure of 33,100.  Emigration from Ireland in the twelve months to April 2014 is estimated to have fallen to 81,900 (from 89,000 in the year to April 2013), while the number of immigrants is estimated to have increased from 55,900 to 60,600 over the same period. 

Net inward migration among non-Irish nationals grew for the second year in a row, from 2,100 to 7,900.

Only 12,300, or one in six, of the 81,900 people who emigrated was unemployed and the rest comprised 28,900 who quit jobs to move abroad and the 29,000 who were students immediately prior to their departure.
 The number of new graduates leaving was higher than at any time in the previous six years, and almost half (47%) of everyone who left had a third-level education.

The CSO said that the number of births in the period was 67,700 while the number of deaths was 29,800, resulting in a natural increase of the population of 37,900.

The combined effect of natural increase and negative net migration resulted in an overall increase in the population of 16,500 bringing the population estimate to 4.61m in April 2014.
