Population estimates

​​​The main measure of Jersey’s population is provided by the census, which was last held in March 2021. Annual population estimates are produced between each census. 

The population and migration is estimated using linked administrative data (data already held by government for the purposes of running services such as education, health, and social security benefits). 

The method uses patterns of activity to indicate whether pseudonymised individuals were resident at various points in time.

2022 population estimate

Jersey's resident population at the end of 2022 was estimated to be 103,200 people.

The report shows that in 2022:

  • the size of the resident population was unchanged from 2021 and has been relatively stable since 2018
  • net migration was +60
  • there were approximately 90 more deaths than births of Jersey residents

Net inward migration of 60 in 2022 was comprised of approximately:

  • 850 net inward migration of people with ‘Registered’ status
  • 300 net inward migration of people with ‘Licensed’ status
  • 910 net outward migration of people with ‘Entitled’ or 'Entitled to work' status
  • 180 net outward migration of people of non-working age
