At the end of 2009 Jersey's population was estimated as 92,500.
The latest update from the Statistics Unit shows that:
- during 2009 the resident population of Jersey increased by some 600
- natural growth (the excess of births over deaths) accounted for 250 of this increase. Net inward migration accounted for the remainder
- the level of net inward migration in 2009 was below that of each of the previous 3 years and was at a similar level to that seen in 2005
The last census of the Island's population was in March 2001 and showed the population to be 87,126. The 2001 census data is updated using more recent birth, death and migration data to give annual estimates for each year.
The next census will be held in 2011.
