The number of people arriving in Ireland from Ukraine has reached 35,670, an increase of 2,500 in two weeks.

This is the number of Personal Public Service numbers (PPSNs) issued to individuals who have fled the war up to 5 June last.

Among the arrivals, 92% or 32,969 individuals could be mapped to a local post office address, through which they were seeking assistance from the Department of Social Protection.

Women aged over 20 accounts for 48% of arrivals to date, while individuals aged 0-19 (both male and female) account for 37%. 

The highest percentage of those arriving (42% or 14,929 individuals) were categorised as one-parent families. Many of these are mothers whose partners have stayed in Ukraine.

As of 07 June 2022, of the 6,824 children who arrived from Ukraine and enrolled in school, 70% were in primary education while 30% were in secondary education.

The average time between the allocation of a PPSN to enrolment in primary or secondary school was just over two weeks.

Dublin has the highest number of school enrolments with 1,194, while Monaghan has the lowest at 21.

Analysis of arrivals also shows that Ukrainians are present in all local electoral areas across the country.

North Inner city Dublin has the highest number at 1,304, with the local electoral area of North Clare still the highest number outside the Dublin area at 1,165.
