Statistics Jersey: who we are and what we do

About us

Statistics Jersey (formerly the States of Jersey Statistics Unit) is the central statistical office for Jersey. 

Statistics Jersey was established by the Statistics and Census (Jersey) Law 2018, which came into force on 23 February 2018. Under this law we have professional and operational independence in producing official statistics.

Our main responsibilities include:

  • producing key information on Jersey's economy and population, eg inflation, house prices, census
  • carrying out regular surveys eg household spending and income, and the Jersey Opinions and Lifestyle Survey
  • producing a range of public health statistics
  • advising and assisting States' departments on survey design and analysis
  • running independent surveys on behalf of other States' departments
  • providing a statistical service to the public, politicians, States' departments and businesses

To ensure our statistics are high quality and impartial, we follow the Code of Practice for Official Statistics in Jersey and the Code of Practice for Statistics in Jersey. Our work is overseen by the Statistics Users Group.

We aim to operate in an open and transparent manner and publish all of our reports on the Jersey in Figures pages of We also welcome comment on the official statistics produced in Jersey; you can contact us by email.

Statistics Jersey is currently organised into two main teams:

Official Statistics Production

The Official Statistics Production team are responsible for publishing official statistics in line with the approved publication schedule. We aim to provide the residents, businesses and Government of Jersey with economic, demographic, social and environmental statistical reports and deliver impartial analysis. Our outputs include the Jersey RPI, Average Earnings Index, the report on the Jersey Opinions and Lifestyle Survey as well as other high-profile reports. In order to produce these outputs we conduct regular business and household surveys as well as larger projects such as the Living Cost and Household Income Survey and the Jersey Census.

Analytics and Statistics Enablement

The Analytics and Statistics Enablement Team’s purpose is to increase analytics capability and impact across the whole of Government. We’re supporting the implementation of the three pillars of the Code of Practice for Statistics (Trustworthiness, Quality and Value), and publishing data and indicators to help decision makers and Islanders measure progress against Island Outcomes and government organisational performance. We also provide a central statistical resource to the organisation, including developing organisation wide statistical standards and guidance, and working with cross-departmental datasets to provide statistical insights to help policy colleagues and ministers make decisions to improve outcomes for Islanders.
