Market research (FOI)

Market research (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by States of Jersey and published on 09 April 2018.


Please kindly provide details of all 'market research' conducted by the States of Jersey for the years 2016,2017 and 2018 to date.

Please break this down by:

  • department

  • date commissioned

  • how much was spent

  • the topic of the survey ( eg electoral reform, Future Hospital and so on)

  • format (eg online, telephone)

  • the name of the research provider used ( eg Island Research, Ipsos Mori, Populus).

By the term ‘market research’ I am referring to the activity of gathering information about Islanders’ needs and preferences commissioned by the States of Jersey and conducted by or set up using a third party provider. Telephone surveys are a common example of these.

Please also provide details of any long-standing relationships between the States and market research providers, providing tender / contract documents (redacted if commercially sensitive) featuring the terms of agreement and costs where possible.

The reason I ask regarding ‘long-standing relationships’ is in case the exact amount spent on each topic of research cannot be quantified because the States are billed for a fixed period of time rather than by topic due to the relevant companies being on retainer.


Please see the spreadsheet below which provides the information requested.
