REVEALED: The average disposable income per person for every county in Ireland

Do you have more or less disposable income than the average individual in your county?

The average person in the Republic of Ireland had disposable income of €20,939 in 2016, according to figures released by the Central Statistics Office on Friday.

2016 was the third year in a row that there was an increase in the average disposable income figure, although it still falls short of the figures in 2007 (€21,052) and 2008 (€22,520).

The CSO arrived at disposable income figures for each individual county by adding social transfers to primary income and subtracting income taxes and social insurance contributions (PRSI etc.)

As you might expect, there is a pretty glaring gap between the county with the highest average disposable income per person (Dublin - €24,061) and the county with the lowest average disposable income per person (Donegal - €16,099).

The Border region (Cavan, Donegal, Leitrim, Louth, Monaghan and Sligo), meanwhile, reports the lowest figures of all regions in Ireland with an average disposable income of €18,117 per person.
