Jersey Annual Social Survey launched

25 May 2012

Over the next few days, a random sample of 4,200 households will receive a 2012 Jersey Annual Social Survey form through the post. The Statistics Unit would like to encourage all selected households to respond.

The survey asks Jersey residents their opinions on a wide variety of topics, including inward migration, housing needs, discrimination, parking in town and other public services. It also explores aspects of residents’ lifestyles, this year looking at areas such as employment and health, as well as finding out how many people can speak Jersey French.

The survey has been running since 2005, providing important information which is used directly by government in decision-making and in developing and planning public services. The reports are freely available for all to view on the Statistics Unit website.

Commenting on the survey Dr Duncan Gibaut, Chief Statistician for Jersey, said “The Social Survey has proven to be an invaluable source of information for the development of evidence-based policy, and its continued usefulness depends on the public’s support. We have had a very good response in previous years, and from this we know that people found that the topics were relevant to their lives.”

“I would like to reassure everyone that all responses to the survey will be treated in the strictest confidence and will only be used to produce grouped numbers. So if you do receive a form please complete it and send it back. By doing so you’ll help us all gain a better understanding of social issues in the Island.”
