Population estimates

​​​The main measure of Jersey’s population is provided by the census, which was last held in March 2011.

Between each census, we produce annual population estimates. We take the census population figure as a baseline and then estimate the change in population each year using:

  • administrative data
  • census information on migration patterns in and out of Jersey

2015 population estimate

Jersey's resident population at the end of 2015 was estimated as 102,700.

The latest report shows that during 2015:

  • the resident population increased by 1,700 people
  • net inward migration accounted for 1,500 of the increase
  • natural growth (the excess of births over deaths) accounted for 220

Total net inward migration of 1,500 in 2015 comprised of approximately:

  • 400 net inward ‘licensed’ employees and their dependents
  • 1,100 net inward ‘registered’ employees and their dependents

During the last 10 years, the resident population has increased by 11,700 people.

Net migration has accounted for three-quarters (75%) of the total population growth over the last 10 years.
