Number of residents leaving the island (FOI)

Number of residents leaving the island (FOI)

Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 25 July 2022.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


How many residents (5yrs and over) of age 18 and over have left the island in 2021 (per quarter), and Q1 and Q2 of 2022 (if this year's data is already available). thank you. 


The information required to answer this request is not held. 

There is no single channel by which government comprehensively collects information on people leaving the island, therefore it is not possible to give definitive total numbers of all customers who have told us they are leaving or have left the island. 

The Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 does not require a Scheduled Public Authority to manipulate or create new data sets in order to provide a response. 

Article 10 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 therefore applies.  

However, information in response to a previous Freedom of Information request may be helpful:
