Please note that the department did not start to record data by Parish until 2013 and therefore the data for years 2010, 2011 and 2012 shows the total numbers across the Island.
The column labelled ‘Other’ includes bedsits, holiday lets and staff accommodation.
The 2011 census identified 44,698 private dwellings* and 157 communal establishments in Jersey. This base figure has been used to estimate the additional number of dwellings developed over the requested period.
*Private dwellings as measured by the census are not necessarily separate physical dwellings; in the census separate dwellings were identified where the occupants shared a living space and a cooking area and may not necessarily correspond to a dwelling with a separate entrance. For example, a lodger in a private household was counted as living in a separate dwelling if there was a separate living space and cooking facilities for their own use.
