Digital Policy framework banner government graphicDigital Policy framework banner government graphic

The definition used in this release was developed by Digital Jersey, drawing from analysis done by the OECD using the UN Standard Industrial Classifications (SICs) along with UK Office for National Statistics (ONS). Digital Jersey’s definition differs from the UK in that it includes e-commerce and advertising agencies, as sectors dependent on technology.


These estimates have been produced using Population Office sources (Manpower returns) from identified digital businesses by SIC classification.
