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.
