The number of people who signed on the Live Register increased by almost 13,000 last month.
The seasonally adjusted total for July was 226,600, up 12,900 from June.
Figures also show that in the last week of July, 274,578 people were in receipt of the Pandemic Unemployment Payment (PUP).
While 447,639 benefitted from the Temporary COVID-19 Wage Subsidy Scheme last month.
A total of 922,696 persons were either on the Live Register for July or received either the PUP or the Temporary Wage Subsidy Scheme.
But this number is not the total of the three schemes, as there is some overlap between them.
This is due to the different frequency of the payments and the fact that some people who are included on the Live Register, but not receiving a payment, might be in receipt of either the PUP or the subsidy scheme.
Of the 274,578 people in receipt of the PUP for the week ending August 2nd, 53.2% are men, 71.6% are Irish and almost one-quarter are in each of the 25-34 year (22.7%) and 35-44 year (22.5%) age groups.
While 703,181 people have received at least one payment since the scheme was established in March.
For those on the Temporary Wage Subsidy Scheme, out of the 279,255 currently on it and having received a payment for the week ending July 26th 54.5% are men, 75.8% are Irish nationals and 48.6% are aged between 25 and 44.
CSO statistician Catalina Gonzalez says: "The COVID-19 income supports were originally set up as short-term emergency income supports but they have been extended several times and there have been changes made in terms of the eligibility criteria and how they are being administered.
"While the Pandemic Unemployment Payment and the Temporary Wage Subsidy Scheme were both expected, until recently, to cease in August, the latest announcements have indicated that the Pandemic Unemployment Payment is expected to continue into 2021 while the Temporary Wage Subsidy Scheme will be replaced by the Employment Wage Subsidy Scheme from September 1st 2020.
"The CSO will continue to evaluate the current income support schemes and any new schemes to determine whether any changes are required to the methodology for our Live Register release."
