  • 31 March 2020

  • 15 April 2020

  • 30 April 2020

The number of redundancies and people on furlough schemes.


The Island-wide unemployment percentage.


The retail price index (inflation) in Jersey.


The average working hours per week.


The average household weekly income.

The GVA or GDP figure for the Island in all sectors and industries for the two week periods beginning on the dates provided above.


The information requested is not held. Much of the requested information consists of statistics that are either not currently compiled in Jersey or are not compiled at the frequency requested.

To assist the enquirer, statistics published by Statistics Jersey can be found on the Jersey in Figures page here:
