The Jersey Income Distribution Survey was undertaken in mid-2002 to better understand the differences in the incomes of Jersey residents including the most vulnerable and low-income groups. The work was needed as part of the process to develop a new benefits system and as an input into the ongoing fiscal review.
The incomes of Island households were investigated through a random sample of all private households, which resulted in usable data from 1,240 respondent households. All results shown have been derived from the raw survey data by weighting according to demographic and socio-economic profiles recorded by the 2001 Jersey Census.
