Registered unemployment report published

12 January 2024

​​The registered unemployment report for the fourth quarter 2023 has been published today by Statistics Jersey. 

Customer and Local Services compiles data on people registered as actively seeking work (ASW) in Jersey. Statistics Jersey independently analyses this anonymised data and publishes a quarterly report. 


For figures comparing with the previous quarter, it is worth noting that historically there has been an increase in the number of ASW registrants during the month of September. A key factor in such a specific monthly increase is the requirement for any individual claiming Income Support (IS) whose youngest child will reach either age four, five or twelve during the new academic year to seek work or seek more hours of work. The seasonally adjusted figures within this report take this annual process into account. 


On 31 December 2023
  • on a seasonally adjusted  basis, the total number of people registered as actively seeking work (ASW) was  90 higher than at the end of the previous quarter and 60 higher compared with a year earlier
  • the non-seasonally adjusted ASW total was 720; this total is 20 higher than the end of the previous quarter and 50 higher compared with a year earlier 
  • a greater number of females (390 individuals) than males (330 individuals) were registered as ASW
  • the total number of long-term ASW (registered for more than twelve months) was 180; this total is essentially unchanged from the previous quarter and 20 lower compared with a year earlier
  • of the 720 people registered as ASW, 230 individuals were engaged in some form of paid employment and classified as underemployed; this includes 80 individuals who were classified as long-term ASW
