Jersey Income Distribution Survey 2009/10 report

Produced by the Statistics Jersey (Strategic Policy, Planning and Performance)
Authored by Statistics Unit and published on 27 Sep 2010
Prepared internally, no external cost


​​The Jersey Income Distribution Survey 2009/10 report describes the average household income in Jersey, breaking the figures down by household type, tenure and residential qualifications. It also explores inequality indicators for Jersey, the threshold of ‘relative low income’ and which households fall below this threshold. The report also compares the 2009/10 results with those of 2002, and also with the UK.

The report shows that:

  • the median (equivalised) income for households in Jersey before housing costs was £667 per week, and £522 per week after housing costs

  • these income levels are 26% and 35% higher respectively than the corresponding figures in 2002
  • equivalised incomes are 64% higher in Jersey in 2009/10 than in the UK 2008/09, before housing costs, and 52% higher after housing costs are taken into account
  • pensioner households account for half (50%) of the lowest income quintile before housing costs, and for two-fifths (37%) of the lowest income quintile after housing costs
  • couples (living with children, or not) make up three-fifths (63%) of the highest income quintile before housing costs
  • 1 in 7 (14%) households were found to be in the category of relative low income before housing costs, rising to more than 1 in 5 (22%) households after housing costs
