2013 Social Survey launched

31 May 2013

The States of Jersey Statistics Unit has launched the 2013 Jersey Annual Social Survey (JASS). Over the next few days 3,300 randomly selected households will receive a questionnaire 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. This year there is particular focus on living in Jersey; how people rate their quality of life and what aspects of life are important to them. It also explores people’s attitudes towards getting involved with government, for example voting in elections and the recent referendum.

Invaluable for evidence-based policy making

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 at 

Commenting on the survey, the Chief Statistician for Jersey, Dr Duncan Gibaut 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.”
