​​The Social Security Department compiles and administers data on people registered as Actively Seeking Work in Jersey. The States of Jersey Statistics Unit independently analyses this anonymised data and publishes monthly reports of the figures.

On 31 August 2014:

  • on a seasonally adjusted basis, the total number of people registered as actively seeking work (ASW) in Jersey was 10 higher than a month earlier (July 2014) and at the same level as the average (mean) for the preceding three months
    the seasonally adjusted ASW total remained at essentially the lowest level seen for more than two and a half years, since December 2011
  • the non-seasonally adjusted ASW total was 1,510. This latest total is 10 lower than in the previous month (July 2014) and 310 lower than a year earlier (August 2013)
  • long-term ASW (registered for more than twelve months) accounted for a sixth (17%) of total ASW; the number of long-term ASW (250 individuals) was 10 higher than the previous month (July 2014)
  • 260 teenagers aged 16 to ​19 years were registered as ASW, reflecting the seasonal registering of school leavers; 100 teenagers were on the Advance to Work scheme, 20 more than the previous month
