I want stats of people receiving income support - based on nationality. So how many Jersey people are on income support (I want Jersey born and UK born split) how many UK born people are on income support, how many Portuguese people are on income support, Polish etc.


As of 24 June 2020, there are 11,693 people receiving Income Support; this figure includes children.


​Number of people

​British ​4693
​Portuguese ​1218
​Elsewhere in the World​284
​Other European Country​169
​Romanian ​160



It should be noted that nationality may not be place of birth, as people may carry forward the nationality of their parents.
