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

On 30 September 2016:

  • on a seasonally adjusted basis, the total number of people registered as actively seeking work (ASW) was:
    • 120 higher than the previous month
    • 110 higher than the average for the preceding three months
    • 130 lower than a year earlier
  • the non-seasonally adjusted ASW total was 1,430; this total is​ 90 higher than in the previous month and 130 lower than a year earlier
  • the total number of long-term ASW (registered for more than twelve months) was 290; this total is 40 higher than the previous month and 90 higher than a year earlier
  • there were 420 individuals registered as ASW but engaged in some form of paid employment and classified as underemployed; this includes 120 individuals also classified as long-term ASW
  • key factors behind the increase in the total number of people registered as ASW in the latest month, and also in the number of long-term ASW, were the changes in Income Support criteria relating to parents with young children (introduced in September 2015) and to Long term Incapacity Benefit (effective May 2016)
