The Central Statistics Office Data Visualisation tool to track key indicators on the relationship between Ireland and the United Kingdom. The information is displayed graphically and links directly to the CSO databank so that the most recent data available is always shown.

- Calculating the percentage of Ireland’s Trade in Services (Imports) that comes from the United Kingdom
- Interpreting the Trade in Services (Imports) Combined Bar Chart/ Trend Graph.
- Ireland’s Trade in Services (Exports) using the charts
- Calculating a Rolling Annual %
- Calculating the average spend by Irish residents on trips to Great Britain and other countries.
