The 2017 report on the Jersey Opinions and Lifestyle Survey has been released today by the States of Jersey Statistics Unit.
Around 1,300 households took part in the random survey which collects information on the behaviours and opinions of Islanders.
Survey topics for 2017 included views on:
- coping financially
- health (including smoking, weight and mental health)
- organ donation
- wellbeing (including breastfeeding, personal wellbeing and work-life balance)
- living in Jersey
- internet and communication
The survey was run independently by the Statistics unit, with individual States departments requesting specific topic areas to be included. The results allow everyone in the Island to have a better understanding of social issues, and help in government decision-making.
This survey was formerly known as the Jersey Annual Social Survey, which has been run since 2005 and was renamed in 2016.
