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

2014 population estimate

Jersey's resident population at the end of 2014 was estimated as 100,800.

The latest report shows that during the two year period:

  • the resident population increased by 1,800 people
  • net inward migration accounted for 1,200 of the two year increase
  • natural growth (the excess of births over deaths) accounted for the remaining 600

Total net inward migration of 1,200 in the two year period comprised of approximately:

  • 400 net inward ‘licensed’ employees and their dependents
  • 800 net inward ‘registered’ employees and their dependents

Average (mean) net migration over the latest three year period (2012 to 2014) was 600 persons per year into the Island.

During the last 10 years, the resident population has increased by almost 11,000 people.
