Frequently asked questions about the Annual Earnings Survey

Why​​ you have received this survey

Your business has been selected from the register of undertakings established under Article 38 of the Control of Housing and Work (Jersey) Law ​2012. We survey undertakings of all sizes to ensure our statistics are representative of the Jersey economy. We select all larger undertakings (those with 50 or more employees) as their information is so significant. We also select some smaller undertakings through a random selection process. These undertakings are very important to us.

The Average Earnings Survey is conducted under the provisions of the Statistics and Census (Jersey) Law 2018. Once selected, your business is legally obliged to comply. You cannot appeal your selection.
