Social survey for 2015 launched

27 May 2015

The States of Jersey Statistics Unit has launched the 2015 Jersey Annual Social Survey (JASS).

Over the next few days, 3,200 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 the questionnaire covers issues around:

  • speed limits on Jersey’s roads
  • online and high street shopping habits
  • the housing needs of Islanders over the next few years
  • recycling

Invaluable for evidence-based policy making

The survey has been running since 2005 and provides important information which is used directly by government in decision-making and in developing and planning public services.

These reports are available below.

Commenting on the survey, the Chief Statistician for Jersey, Dr Duncan Gibaut said: “The Social Survey is an invaluable source of information for developing 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 islander’s opinions and way of life.”
