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

population estimate

The latest report shows that during :

*The 2013 figures are estimates based on the two-year period 2013-2014. Analysis for the two years was combined, primarily due to a delay in the December 2013 data, following the implementation of the Control of Housing and Work Law 2012 (CHWL).

Population by age and gender

Estimates of the number of people in each age and gender group have been produced by applying the age-gender distributions of the population projection (from the Population Projections 2016 report, net +1,000 migration scenario) to the estimate of the total population.
