The Jersey Annual Social Survey (JASS) collects and analyses detailed information on a wide range of social issues on an annual basis. It provides official social statistics about Jersey, allowing everyone in the Island to have a better understanding of social issues and for policy to be made from a more informed standpoint.
The Statistics Unit runs the survey, and produces and publishes the results independently, with the included topic areas being requested by individual departments. The survey has a set of core questions covering key characteristics of the population, along with questions on a range of different issues.
Some of the topics covered in the latest edition include:
- priorities for government
- information sources (internet, social networking, local news)
- housing standards
- travel and transport
- public services
