Jersey's population estimate to be released

popr

THE official estimate of Jersey’s current population is due to be released this week.

When the last estimate was issued in 2015, the States Statistics Unit put the Island’s population at 102,700.

The figures revealed that the population had increased by 11,700 since 2005.

The increase was driven largely by net migration – the difference between the number of people leaving Jersey and the number moving here.

During 2015, it was estimated that the population increased by 1,700 - about 1,500 from net migration and about 200 from natural growth.

The current estimate is due to be released on Friday.

Whatever the official "spin" figure...you can add about another 10 - 20% .....

And no I don't have stats to back that claim up...just an educated guess....

Exactly two years ago Jerseys least effective politician with the words Chief Minister in his title ( Assistant in this case) , and boy oh boy is that title a real achievement given the other twos foot shooting capabilities. Was reported on 24/6/15 like this

'Assistant Chief Minister Paul Routier, who has responsibility for administering the Control of Housing and Work Law and population policy, said the breach of the 100,000 mark was not a surprise, but that it would have ‘been nice for numbers to have been a bit lower.'

This is beyond parody......again.

Close to 110,000. Might start reducing considering the number of locals leaving their beloved Island due to constantly being ripped off!

jersey man

so many Locals/ or friends that have been here for years.... have left in the last 5 years its a shame because, they loved the island. but was pushed out because of less jobs and no quals to buy or rent/, but its funny because so many come into the island and don't have quals, to rent or buy but somehow they can stay, hows that work?

has to way over 120,000 now...

Realist

The more the population increase, the more demand for housing and additional expenditure on schools, social infrastructure and health. It's a never ending spiral. The more you build, the more demand is created. It's a pyramid leading to a point in the future where the money runs out.
