These figures are recorded through a combination of the An Post network of 5,600 delivery staff working with OSi.
The report, published on a bi- annual basis, relies solely on the GeoDirectory database of commercial address points for its information. The database distinguishes between ‘an address point’ which is a unit as opposed to a ‘building’ which can comprise one or more units. The term ‘address point’ is used in this report as a proxy for each unit.
