The Central Statistics Office has published new data on household income. The report examines income for households and individuals in Ireland for 2016, broken down by county and by electoral division. Income is also assessed across the areas of housing, health, education, occupation and commuting. Income has been capped at €200,000 at individual level to remove the top 1% of income earners for confidentiality purposes.

The median gross income for households was €45,256 and ranged from €32,259 in Donegal to €66,203 in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown. The equivalent figure for Co. Monaghan was €38,920, which is higher than eight of the 31 local government areas in the Republic. The figure is slightly higher than neighbouring Cavan (€38,889) and almost the same as for Cork City (€38,935). From the list published below by The Northern Standard that was compiled from the official statistics, it can be seen that two areas in County Monaghan, Bocks and Donaghanoyne, fall into the second highest bracket of average household income, between €51,535 and €64,278. No electoral area is in the highest category, which extends up to €105,943 (average). At the bottom of the list are the urban areas of Ballybay, Clones, Monaghan town, Carrickmacross and Castleblayney, along with Church Hill and Mullyash near Castleblayney, and Derrygorry near Aughnacloy and the border with Co. Tyrone.

This is probably because there are fewer people living in town centres and the other three districts contain sparsely populated townlands. Most households surveyed live in rural areas or villages outside the main towns. The bottom of the list comprises average household incomes between €14,901 and €33,449. In the case of Ballybay town, the figure is €18,780, the lowest in the county.
